Inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze's past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze's profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.Written by
Ethan Hawke decided to make a biopic of Blaze Foley, a musician who was little known in his lifetime, because he found it important to make a point that it is not only the lives of celebrities that are worth showing on the screen. See more »
During a montage scene when Blaze is writing postcards from the road, Sybil is shown counting a handful of redesigned $20 bills. Foley was killed in 1989, but the redesigned $20 was not available to the public until 1998. See more »
Literally one of the worst movies I've seen in the theater. The screenplay is terrible (no one talks like these people talk). The lead actor is terrible (it's apparently his fist acting job). The chronology is all over the place. The film is just BORING. I couldn't wait for it to be over, yet it just kept plodding along.
