Mo' Better Blues

Mo' Better Blues
  • 1990
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Written by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Wesley Snipes, Joie Lee, Cynda Williams

Exuberantly shot, enterprisingly designed and evocatively scored, Lee's jazz flick scores on the incidentals but neglects the basics with a central storyline that moves at a snail's pace and was never that interesting in the first place. Denzel Washington is the self-absorbed trumpet star Bleek Gilliam, involved with both teacher Joie Lee and aspiring singer Williams while failing to notice manager Spike's gambling habit and the discord in his band. Worth seeing all the same, but patience is required.
