I had the privilege of seeing an early screening of Blue Like Jazz in July of last year at the ECHO Conference and I really enjoyed it. From what I’ve heard the film is even better now having gone through a few more rounds of tweaks and edits.
I’m not sure if I’ll make it out to see it again, but I’m buying a ticket today to support this movie for a few reasons:
1. I loved the book.
2. I loved that this movie was made possible by fans of the book. (see the video if you’re not familiar with the story).
3. I love Don (okay well, I don’t know him that well…but I really like him.)
4. I loved the movie.
5. I want it to play in more theaters so I’m doing my part to give it a good opening weekend.
Here’s a video from the USA Today about the story behind the movie and the film’s premiere at SXSW last month.
