Movie Notes - 'Let's Get Lost' (1988)

Last time around it was Thelonious Monk, and this week's jazz documentary from 1988 is Bruce Weber's elegant and mysterious examination of the life and celebrity of trumpeter and singer Chet Baker -- Let's Get Lost.  An icon of the West Coast school of cool, Baker did indeed get lost amid a heroin addiction, run-ins with the law, and a serious beatdown that trashed his embouchure for a number of years.  A fascinating life, a more fascinating film.
