| As depressing as Jazz.
Jackie Paris, was, lets face it, a marginally good jazz singer who had a few hits then disappeared into obscurity. It happens all the time, not just in Jazz, but in all forms of music. Almost like a one hit wonder. The director, Raymond De Felitta, decides to track down Paris, and discover his rise and fall. While these are usually quite interesting, Paris is not, quite possibly because, again, he just doesn't have quite the appeal that makes his fall from grace so spectacular in movies like this. Also, it doesn't help that Paris is a particularly scummy character in himself, as he was not particularly nice to anyone, leaving many spouses and kids hurting. The whole thing is not shot particularly well either, lots of shots are shaky and grainy, making this a less then memorable viewing experience.
