“Ever heard of Blaze Foley? I hadn’t. But Ethan Hawke has, and he wanted to make sure the rest of us did. Hawke’s new movie Blaze reconstitutes the late country singer—who died in 1989 at the age of 39—through three different lenses. We see him in his relationship with girlfriend Sybil Rosen; we watch his final concert before his untimely death; and we drop in as his friends remember him in a long radio interview. One of those friends is Townes Van Zandt, who’s played by musician Charlie Sexton, which lends a fluid meta texture to this biopic. After stellar performances in First Reformed and Juliet, Naked, Hawke closes out a banner year with this compelling directorial effort, which spins the clichés of the self-destructive celebrity narrative into an honest exploration of a man who couldn’t behave himself to save his life. In his first screen performance, singer/songwriter Ben Dickey inhabits the role of Foley with a restlessness that feels authentic; he’s a genuine find… Blaze might be telling a story we’ve seen before, but it does so from an angle that offers a few surprises, including a collective cameo by Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn and Richard Linklater, and Hawke’s own engaging presence as the unprepared DJ conducting the interview that frames the film… The guy’s grown into a real filmmaker. This should be encouraged. Go see Blaze.”—Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
