Well-known fashion photographer Bruce Weber (Greensburg, Pennsylvania, 1946) portrays mythical jazz trumpeter Chet Baker in this classic work. Masterfully filmed during his last tour, it interweaves the portrait of a Chet Baker consumed by drugs with interviews with friends and people close to the musician and footage from the fifties. Weber portrays the rise and fall of a genius of cool jazz, admired by Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, and many others. A stark portrait, in flashback form, of one of music’s greats.
Let’s Get Lost, 1988, 35 mm, 119 min. Spanish subtitles.
