UPDATE: The venerable Nate Chinen weighs in with an excellect, but not charitable reveiew of the film. His assessment rings true to me, I’ll only add that I seemed to have enjoyed it a bit more than he did. Viewed through the “jazz movie” perspective it is a shallow farce, but as a 21st-century homage to Charlie Chaplin it was a good deal of fun.
