Bridges makes “Crazy Heart”

jeffbridges“Crazy Heart” featuring Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal takes place in beautiful New Mexico and displays artful performances that make the movie worthwhile seeing.

Below what the critics are saying:

Variety’s Todd McCarthy said, “Like a relaxed country tune, Cooper’s direction is amiable but a tad leisurely; the tyro helmer puts the story and character values across, but a little more snap wouldn’t have hurt. The New Mexico-shot feature looks fine, and real-life concert settings bring a convincing feel to the performance scenes, as do the solid vocals by Bridges and Farrell.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s Kirk Honeycutt said, “Actor Scott Cooper makes his debut as a writer-director, but he’s working with tired material. As it is, Bridges and the cast perform wonders to make “Crazy Heart” seem as fresh as it does. But an ex-star out of control and the self-destructive drunk is a cross between types with too many antecedents in other movies.”

    Fox Searchlight isn’t wasting any time getting over its slumpy fall trifecta of Whip It, Amelia and Gentlemen Broncos, choosing instead to play its ace in the Oscar hole with next month’s Crazy Heart. A few strategic early screenings resulted in exactly the buzz the studio intended for Best Actor hopeful Jeff Bridges, and now the film’s trailer reveals to the rest of us a few slivers of the folksy woe and redemption that the Academy is likely to reward next spring.
