Born to Be Blue ★★★★

Can’t recommend this one enough, and I don’t even like jazz nor biopics. Subtle, avoiding many a cliché while painting this portrait of a tortured artist. Exceptionally shot, with an intimate style, and our man Ethan is simply unbelievable. Will stay with me for sure, ‘cause I was born a little bit blue, too, and it did what the best of the genre can do: Make me eager to get to know Chet Baker.
