| A Moving Portrait of an Authentic Music Legend
I rarely write movie reviews, but this poignant film of the life, and music, of Blaze Foley compelled me to sit down and do so while the memory of it is still fresh in my mind. The movie evoked memories of lost simpler times in Austin, when one could buy a cheap pitcher of beer in some rustic venue and stay out all night listening to music performed by folks who would go on to become legends. Two of those legends, Blaze Foley, powerfully portrayed by Ben Dickey, and Townes Van Zandt, brought brilliantly to life by Charlie Sexton, are deeply interwoven into the tale of Austin's music scene, so if you need a reminder of what drew you to Austin in the first place, or are just the least bit curious about Austin's music heritage and beginnings, this is the movie for you. The music alone is worth the price of admission.
