Crazy Heart (film di Scott Cooper del 2009)

Ci sono attori che attendono decenni per ricevere l’oscar: né sono grandi esempi Paul Newman e Al Pacino. A far loro compagnia, tra i tanti, c’è anche Jeff Bridges, premiato nel 2010 per il suo cantante alcolizzato nel film CRAZY HEART, diretto da Scott Cooper, che narra in poco meno di due ore la tormentata vita professionale e privata di Bad Blake, un interprete della musica country in fase calante, con quattro matrimoni falliti ed un figlio di 28 anni che non vede da 24.

Un giorno conosce, per via di un’intervista, la giornalista Jean con cui vive una intensa relazione facendogli riscoprire finanche l’ispirazione compositiva. Tuttavia il vizio di alzare il gomito gli fa perdere di vista il figlio della compagna che, infuriata, lo pianta: un gesto che stimola Bad a disintossicarsi ed a rimettersi in pista nel circuito canoro.

Bridges, oltre la meritata e tardiva statuetta vinta, evidenzia le sue ottime doti canore cantando i brani eseguiti nel film, ma solo in coda allo stesso rivela il suo vero nome e proprio a Jean, ossia Otis. Nel film, oltre la fondamentale spalla femminile Maggie Gyllenhaal, appaiono Colin Farrel, rivale e tutto sommato amico magari non fraterno del protagonista e Robert Duvall, che guarda caso nel 1984 aveva vinto il suo unico oscar nel ruolo di un cantante country al tramonto.

Cooper dirige un dramma che tuttavia elargisce molti momenti di ottimo intrattenimento grazie alle canzoni eseguite da Bad Blake, che tengono lontane lacrime e facili commozioni. Inoltre i comprimari sono defilati ma efficaci al momento giusto, grazie anche alla solida e scorrevole sceneggiatura scritta dallo stesso regista.
