    Another of a recent spate of films that would have been significantly improved by losing about half its runtime. Some of the decisions about narrative structure were questionable, and all of the performances were forgettable. But, like most mediocre biopics about iconic artists, it’s still a fun watch if your hopes aren’t too high.
