Let's Get Lost

4

“In years to come, will you look back on making this film as a good time?” director Bruce Weber asks the hunched, strung-out addict that was once jazz icon Chet Baker. “How could I see it any other way?” Chet croaks, incredulous. “It was a dream.” Baker didn’t have years; he died before its premiere. Shot in monochrome, Weber’s film is a captivating if romanticised portrait of the Athena poster-boy of ’50s jazz; an elegant jumble of hedonistic tales, sour acrimony and Chet’s swoon-some singing and trumpet. Extras include a fresh Making Of.
