Almost Blue is almost good
18 August 1999 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

The movie has a lot going for it. Great music, lovely women, interesting characters and a plot with some promise. For me, it did not deliver. The story did not flow, and there were no surprises and no suspense. It is worth a watch, but just barely.
