Spike Lee's film is filled with promising ideas and moments of technical virtuosity.

Though it's full of striking visual ideas and actorly turns, it never fully convinces.

For the only time in his remarkable career, Spike Lee has failed to tell it like it is.

Centering on the career of a jazz musician (well played by Denzel Washington, just before he became a star), this mid-range picture has nice production values but the drama is too diffuse, lacking the edge of Spike Lee's more overtly political works.

It's tight, suspenseful, funny and packed with great music.

Personal rather than social issues come to the fore in Mo' Better Blues, a Spike Lee personality piece dressed in jazz trappings that puffs itself up like Bird but doesn't really fly.

Mo' Better Blues is not a great film, but it's an interesting one, which is almost as rare.

Denzel, Wesley and Co are fine, but Mo' Better Blues hits too many bum notes.

Despite stylish camerawork and sturdy acting, this lengthy indulgence succeeds neither as jazz movie nor as cautionary tale.

Full of wonderful music, grand visuals, and melodramatic plot twists, the movie is laced with very funny moments, as well as interesting insights into the world of jazz and the plight of the dedicated musician.

May 20, 2003

From characters to camera angles, this story of a self-absorbed jazz trumpeter is one long cliche, the kind that might make his most loyal admirers wince and wonder, 'Spike, what happened?'
