Hits a sweet spot between impossibly romantic, sensual and clear-eyed, critical assessment of a brilliant but fundamentally flawed human being. A portrait of a man with a talent so prodigious and natural that it gave him a kind of terrible freedom. "It was so beautiful. All I'm saying is, it was a dream, you know. Things like that don't happen ... just to very few."

I worshipped Chet back in college when I had fantasies of jazz-trumpet playing. And then I grew up of course, and saw Chet's life for what it was. The film didn't tell me much I didn't already know from biographies, but it makes the tragedy of Baker's life, and the lives of those he touched, more real. More importantly, you get to see exactly how his life and his music (in terms of his style of playing and singing) were related.

The film has a striking visual palette, even if Weber struggles to find a compelling way to tell his story. By the time Weber turns his cameras on Baker in the mid-1980s, he's as beaten as ancient barn sitting unprotected in a storm alley. Weber's film is evocative in capturing Baker's heyday, but his descent, which should be more compelling dramatically, isn't vividly drawn. It makes the whole find feel like a notion that no one too the time to properly develop.

A depressing look at the life of Chet Baker, who's sort of tragic hero and stories of people like him are never bright. This documentary is well filmed on black and white film and shows interviews with Baker himself and variety of people from his life, mostly women.

Mesmerizing. A perfect marriage of form and content.

Don’t get it. Kknew of him/enjoyed his stuff but seems like a selfish jerk. There was also a “funny” part?? where he stepped in and started having sex with a woman who thought he was someone else? That’s called rape and probably wasn’t so funny for her. He doesn’t treat others well, but not even in an interesting way where he’s tortured by it, he’s just a manipulative ass. A lot of his fame and admiration seems to just come from the fact that he used to be hot. I like him less for this.
