Style Over Substance

The story could have been told more clearly. I understand that they were trying to mirror the flashbacks of an insane genius, but it would have worked just fine if the story had a little more order and clarity. I honestly figured from the trailer that the storytelling might have been off, but I was so drawn in by the music and the overall look of the movie that I still just had to see it. Despite some major drawbacks in plot, I do not regret watching it at all. The music! That's what I came for. The actor playing Bolden wasn't half bad to look at either. The actor playing his manager (who also had a significant role on Boardwalk Empire) has a look that seems to fit that time period so well. He is fun to watch on screen. Not much to the plot, but the look and sound (the sound!!!) of this film definitely worth the watch. If you like jazz or if you don't, watch it for the music. Now that I've finished I can do some of my own research into Buddy Bolden who seems like a fascinating enigma.

choppy

As other reviewers previously mentioned ,I was probably more confused about the life of Buddy Bolden after watching this movie than before. It jumps way too much between timelines ,which usually works when used in moderation ( think " Get On Up " , "Ray " , " Miles Ahead " etc.) In the filmmakers' defense ,I think this is meant to convey the choppy memories of a schizophrenic looking back on his life ,while listening to a radio concert of Louis Armstrong. A good enough Idea ,but dragged out over a couple of hours ,it just tends to get confusing ,and frankly ,annoying. There are a couple of good fantasy(ish) scenes. The scene of when he was a young boy at his mother's workplace was brilliant ,and the parachute scene was just ,well ,bizarre! I had to google the history of the parachute ,just to be sure! All in all ,the acting was okay with what little dialogue there was ,the music was brilliant ,but maybe could have flowed a bit better. Overall ,maybe worth killing a couple of hours if you're interested in the history of jazz ,but I don't believe this movie will be a classic in years to come ,like some other musical biopics.

Interesting story on the history of jazz music.

I was much more excited to see how well the movie trailer was put together, promising a well done historical biopic film. While the scenes are beautifully done in a fantasy fashion, the costumes and scenery seemed period correct; the story was a bit hard to follow, pieced together like a patchwork quilt. I would love to see the working script from this film as it must have taken a genius to put this hodgepodge film together! I did wind up deciding the writer/director must have taken his cue from the inner thoughts of the troubled soul of this musical genius, Buddy Boldon. As it is said, there is a fine line between genius and lunatic. I will give this film 5 stars as I feel the settings, acting, musicial orchestration, etc, was well done, even though the story was a bit hard to follow.
