A bigger star is born!

As far as modern movie musicals of 2018 go, this is the best one of the year. It's quite slow at times but never lags, because of its great editing, jumping between different temporal narratives.

We are told the true life story of folk singer Blaze Foley, who is played magnificently by Ben Dickey. Blaze is as charming as he is obnoxious, but sings like an angel who's had one whisky and a pack of smokes too many, and at times he let's us glance at his emotional core which makes one forgive him all his many, many character flaws.

A good film worth watching. Recommended.

A Moving Portrait of an Authentic Music Legend

I rarely write movie reviews, but this poignant film of the life, and music, of Blaze Foley compelled me to sit down and do so while the memory of it is still fresh in my mind. The movie evoked memories of lost simpler times in Austin, when one could buy a cheap pitcher of beer in some rustic venue and stay out all night listening to music performed by folks who would go on to become legends. Two of those legends, Blaze Foley, powerfully portrayed by Ben Dickey, and Townes Van Zandt, brought brilliantly to life by Charlie Sexton, are deeply interwoven into the tale of Austin's music scene, so if you need a reminder of what drew you to Austin in the first place, or are just the least bit curious about Austin's music heritage and beginnings, this is the movie for you. The music alone is worth the price of admission.

Thanks for the introduction

Blaze was not another story about a washed up country singer who just couldn't help himself, but more like a guy who very humanly did the best he could in a most authentic way. The supporting cast of characters were amazing and this story was about love, destiny, pain and acceptance. Ben wrapped the whole thing up with a bow when delivering the monologue at the end, where Blaze allowed himself just a second to acknowledge his father's effect and his own regrets before putting on the armour and standing up for right. Being lucky enough to attend a Q&A after makes me ready to see it again. Why is Alia Shawkat not listed in cast & crew?
