DVD REVIEW: CRAZY HEART
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
Available now on DVD and Blu-ray
Jeff Bridges erased his name from the list of 'great actors never to have won and Oscar' earlier this year when he – finally – collected the gold statuette for his performance here as Bad Blake. A washed-up country music singer whose career is in the proverbial toilet, reduced to playing bars on the backroads, Blake's fall from grace is compounded by the success of his one-time protege (Colin Farrell). But everything could change with the love of a good woman, in the guise of single mother and budding music journalist, Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Gyllenhaal also scored an Oscar nod (her first) for this film but it's Bridges' show all the way.
