Films Opening January 8, 2010

The Reel Music Festival at the Northwest Film Center

One of the great annual events here in Portland.  Films about rock, jazz, blues, classical, world music, etc.  Always a mixed bag, but you can’t really go wrong.
I have seen Cool, an English doc about the birth of cool jazz from the 40s.  The doc itself is a bit dry and respectful, but the performance footage of Miles Davis, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Dave Brubeck, et al., is priceless.
I have also seen In Search of Mozart and In Search of Beethoven.  If you have to pick one, go to the Beethoven.  But, both are worth seeing, even if the Mozart is less interesting as a film.
I’ll try to see more, and report my views.
