Let's Get Lost 1988

Absorbing documentary of Chet Baker, the prominent ‘50s “cool” jazz trumpeter (and occasional vocalist) who succumbed, like many of his peers, to drug addiction. Weber's black-and-white, fashion photography style well suits his subject. Downbeat, but rarely less than worthy. 125m/B VHS . Chet Baker; D: Bruce Weber.
