This film, Almost Blue, about a sax player (Madsen) on a boozing and self-pitying binge after his wife’s death is so slow moving it almost seems to slur its words. The jazz music of Nelson Hinds almost makes it bearable, but the very idea of a good woman (Walden) saving him from himself is so old hat it’s painful. What with the cigarette-smoking, glass-clinking, and sulky moods, it’s a giant cliché masquerading as a movie. D
