A portrait in black and white, indeed. 1988, 1 hour, 59 minutes. Perfect.

  1. I love Chet Baker but have tried to watch this movie to no avail. I just can’t get past the first ridiculous scenes with Flea prancing around as (I assume) a Chet Baker fanatic. It reminds me of the paid endorsements that Bono has given over the years exalting with great earnestness that X piece of music is sacred to him & the most wonderful sounds he’s ever heard blah blah blah.

  2. I agree very much with the above comment by Johnny JaZz. Anyone with an interest in Chet Baker would do well to read “Deep In A Dream: The Long Night of Chet Baker” by James Gavin, especially after watching this film.
