Musical portraits (II): Let’s Get Lost

The CCCB's cinema

Bruce Weber

Xcèntric presents two sessions dedicated to the music documentary. Two feature films that explore the creativity and the states of mind of two inspired musicians, guitarist Fred Frith and singer and jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, the former at a peak of artistic mastery, the latter, devastated, in the twilight of his career and his life.

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.
