Blu-ray Like Jazz?


Steve Taylor’s movie Blue Like Jazz is out on blu-ray and DVD today.

So I might as well link to one of the most comment-inspiring reviews I’ve ever written. I was surprised by how strongly people felt about this film, cheering for it or tearing it down, after my review went up at Filmwell.

Those comments helped me draw up questions for my interview with Taylor, which was published later at Seattle Pacific University’s Response. In that interview, Taylor explains what was happening when people walked out of the movie at Reed College. Those walkouts… they weren’t what they seemed.
