Bird Regie Clint Eastwood


There’s nothing typical about the way that Eastwood depicts Parker’s addiction; what’s typical is the addiction of those (as seen in Eastwood’s depiction of the white trumpeter Red Rodney) who follow in his footsteps and make the mistake of thinking that jazz is nourished by drugs.

Clint Eastwood’s ambitious and long-awaited biopic about the great Charlie Parker (Forest Whitaker), running 161 minutes, is the most serious, conscientious, and accomplished jazz biopic ever made, and almost certainly Eastwood’s best picture as well… The extreme darkness of the film, visually as well as conceptually, leaves a very haunting aftertaste.
