Those who thought the movie was too long are the same people who can't sit through a movie without pulling out their cell phone.
This film could have been great, but instead it was awful - excruciatingly long, and a hodge podge of editing. The story, if it had been told well, was good. The acting was excellent. The settings and atmosphere authentic and wonderful. But it was an endless jumble that seemed to meander forever. I think the content is there to be an excellent move; it just needed a good editor.
Singer-songwriter Ben Dickey is affecting as Foley, assisted ably by a supporting cast that fights to transcend the drunken-angel clichés of the man’s legacy.
Languid, associative, at times dragging, at other moments deeply affecting, thanks to a song and a trick of the light, Ethan Hawke’s Blaze is difficult to define.
Foley's cult may never grow as big as his most ardent fans would like. But Hawke and Rosen and Dickey have given the man something better than posthumous record sales.
