Low Down

Low Down ★★★½

This movie has some really good performances from John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Glose, Peter Dinklage and an almost unrecognizable Tim Daly. But this look at the life of pianist Joe Albany, deals with his drug addiction during the 1960s and '70s jazz scene while trying to raise his teenage daughter....IS JUST TOO DAMN DEPRESSING. Does every talented jazz musician have to be a drug addict? Without a doubt this will be a one and done movie for me.....as I think the movie is well done....but I will never return for a repeat viewing.
