October Indie Film Series


BLAZE
Directed by Ethan Hawke
Rated R 127 minutes

BLAZE is 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. As lyrical and bittersweet as the music its subject left behind,¬†Blaze¬†takes a decidedly unconventional — yet richly rewarding — approach to the musical biopic.
