If you aren't sure you like jazz, see this movie just to be exposed to the Django sound! Your next trip might be to the record store.

A pleasant film. It's sweet and low down on my list of Allen favorites, but worth seeing for Penn's performance.

It is put together so well you can believe that this human misfit with a terrible taste in tailoring, an insatiable thirst for liquor, an appalling way with women, yet with a guitar in his hand seemingly guided by angels, was a real person.

There's a reason why 'sweet' comes before 'lowdown' in the title, and Morton is it.
