"Cool Blue", a laid back film, was co-directed by Richard Shepard and Mark Mullin. The movie, which evidently went directly to video, gives us a bird's eye view on the world of a struggling artist, Dustin, who is committed to his art and to the pursuit of Christiane, the woman that has made a deep impression on him. The movie has a disorienting start as we watch Dustin and Buzz enter a convenience store and our first reaction is they are going to hold up the place, but it becomes clear, they are starving young artists instead of robbers.

This 1988 film was Woody Harrelson's second credited movie. He appears as Dustin. It shows a young actor with a lot of promise at the center of the story. His best friend is played by Hank Azaria, who was also starting out. Ely Pouget is seen as the woman that awakens a passion in the young artist. Ms. Pouget should be seen in movies more often because she shows a talent for acting that seems to be natural.

The most interesting aspect of the picture is the impressive cameo by Sean Penn, who appears as Paul, the plumber. We have to do a double take, as the actor is almost unrecognizable blond actor with a pony tail.

Richard Shepard was matured since this picture, as shown in his latest effort, "The Matador".
