Let's get lost

Uma das manifestações mais irritantes da contemporaneidade é a celebração de efemérides.
Chet Baker, entre uns poucos mais, pertence ao universo dos músicos para serem ouvidos e recordados sempre. O fabuloso documentário de 1988 "Let's Get Lost" de Bruce Weber é uma maravilhosa homenagem. Agora, disponível no (des)admirável mundo novo da internet.

Documentary on the life of jazz trumpeter and drug addict Chet Baker. Fascinating series of interviews with friends, family, associates and lovers, interspersed with film from Baker’s earlier life and some modern-day performances.
This documentary about jazz trumpeter-singer Chet Baker intercuts footage from the 1950s, when he was part of West Coast Cool, and from his last years. We see the young Baker, he of the beautiful face, in California and in Italy, where he appeared in at least one movie and at least one jail cell (for drug possession). And, we see the aged Baker, detached, indifferent, his face a ruin. Includes interviews with his children and ex-wife, women companions, and musicians.
