Crazy Heart (Netflix disc):
A faded country music musician is forced to reassess his dysfunctional life during a doomed romance that also inspires him.


Finally got around to seeing this. When it first came out, and this is in hindsight, I don’t think I’d have appreciated it as much. However, a couple friends have brought this one up over the years, and it came up on my queue, so I dove in. It IS formulaic at times, but enough slight twists in there to keep it from being cheese. I really liked it, very much worth a watch. And who’d figure that Colin Farrell could pull off a country (well, “new” country) singer? That sure was a diamond in the rough.
