"don't play the notes, play the music," miles davis admonished the members of his bands. this movie not only follows that wise advice, but teaches that even the finest musicians have discordant hearts, and listening to those overburdened hearts isn't a matter of technical mastery. the story is perhaps overloaded with personal crises all falling at a given moment. but all of the actors do fine, nuanced work, with hoffman excelling and walken transcending. this is surely among the finest performances walken has ever given. his work is so quiet, yet so haunted, that you feel his character's life ebbing right before your eyes. bravo to a game, bristling, stirringly in-the-moment cast.
Pros great actors, well shot, fine score
Cons overstuffed plot
Yes, I recommend this movie.

I didn't know what to expect from this - went to see it because I like music and it had a great cast. A lovely film, emotional, thoughtful, though-provoking and satisfying. It seems at first as though it's going to be a little cliched, and the symbolism is at times less than subtle. The internecine entanglements are a little too pat, also. But the appeal to the emotions, through the music, the emotional predicaments of the characters and the believability of the performances are outstanding. I loved this film and would see it again in an instant.
Pros well paced, great story, great actors, wonderful music, lovely settings
Cons a bitt too neat, narrow appeal
Yes, I recommend this movie.
