Blue Like Jazz
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Full disclosure: I'm one of those that donated to a fundraiser to help back the Blue Like Jazz movie. I got to see a FREE advance screening of the film. BUT...

I saw the film two more times as a paying customer. It's better each time I see it (and I liked it lots the first time)!

The Rotten Tomatoes critics average has never been more wrong IMO... the film really resonated with me and seems to have struck a chord with many folks.

The film is funny, heartfelt and thought-provoking. A lot of the critics are slagging the tone shifts from quirky humor to serious drama... how soon they forget that many of them also loved Wes Anderson's similarly tone-hopping The Royal Tenenbaums!

When all is said and done, this is a film about reaching out instead of reaching in, of putting others first and embracing everyone with a true spirit of love. Who can be against that? A movie for everyone no matter what you (do or don't) believe.
