Crazy Heart Review
Songs that are great take root in your mind and reveal their true nature days later, constantly expanding in their power. This is the case the case with Crazy Heart, a straightforward story of coming of (old) old age tale, that is performed with a heft of emotion that compensates for the familiarity of the story. It's deceivingly emotional as well as a classic in quality and form -the latest version of The Wrestler. or a shit-kicker leaving Las Vegas.
The character actor Scott Cooper makes his debut as director with the second script, which is adapted of Thomas Cobb's classic novel. It's not difficult — and possibly even correct to say that his past experiences explain the emphasis on character, the enthralling characters that fuel the plot, as tinny as it may seem. However, that doesn't explain the boldness of his decision to go at such an unhurried, measured pace and openly allowing the paradoxes and confusions that arise from human behavior. It shouldn't stop him from recognizing the stunning quality of cinematographer Barry Markowitz's photographs in capturing the beautiful New Mexican sky, or the sparkle in Maggie Gyllenhaal's eyes. She is a master, bringing the warmth and authenticity to a character that could be a mystery in less capable hands: a strong single mom who adores Bridges"musical hero-turned-father figure. The love story would test the imagination however, she is able to play need and hope extremely well.
She wonders Bad what his inspirations were inspired by: "Life, unfortunately," is the response and pain, loss, pleasures and regrets fuel the fantastic music, composed predominantly from T Bone Burnett (O Brother Where is Thou?) and famous Stephen Bruton. The film could not succeed without the heart of the songs -melancholy without being gloomy and delivered in a rousing manner by Bridges who is absolutely perfect as the whisky-drunk Bad who is a man for who driving drunk isn't as not a crime but it's a way of life. A charismatic, charming, charming but completely destructive, he's both charming and a rage driven by the drink to self-loathing, and self-loathing towards the bottle.
There's been a lot of talk about Bridges' Oscar chances, being recognized four times. He's far too talented to be an easy choice There's no scene-chewing moment of actor self-pityhowever, he is Bad totally. It's a stunning performance, and one that you should watch regardless of who wins. Do not leave the decision to the Academy's gentle whims.
