We finally saw Crazy Heart last night and it completely lived up to my expectations. Jeff Bridges is perfect. The music is perfect.
T-Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham wrote most of the songs Bridges’ character performs in the film. I could listen to (Oscar-winning) The Weary Kind over and over again. Bingham’s acoustic version gives me just the slightest sense of Paul Westerberg – something about the ache in his voice, I guess.
