It's on YouTube, I found it last night and yep, stayed up until about 2 watching it. Interesting.
I'm gonna try a cut and paste, wish me luck
YouTube - Let's Get Lost - Chet Baker - Bruce Weber film
This is the first segment, there are 12 of 10 minutes each.
Yes, I saw it quite a few years ago. Interesting, strange, unsettling,...
That guy looks WORN OUT.
The movie is so beautiful, I need to watch it again ! *sigh*
Bruce Weber did a great thing for Chet.
Ive got a copy I got from ebay. havent watched for awhile, but I remember it being mesmerizing.
Bruce Webber ... I know the name but I just can't place him. Was he a photographer?
I have been looking for this movie for years. Last night I watched (in 10 minute segs.) it for the first time. It confirms what I thought about CB's talent. It was immense. He short circuited the need to learn the horn and went straight to mastery. That said, he was a pretty good technical horn player. A genuine natural.
CB was also a pretty lousy person. Even his mother didn't want to talk about his dark side. Even putting aside his addictions he was narcissistic, hedonistic and manipulative. He may be alive today if that weren't true. This is tragic.
All in all I prefer to listen to his singing and playing then to contemplate the man. But, for me, this is true when thinking of Miles, Charlie Parker and many of the other legends who we would be less rich without.
Let's Get Lost is going to be aired on the Sundance channel on December 21st -- it's on at 3:50am, so might be best to DVR it:

I have an original VHS of it and the video and audio quality is fairly poor, so looking forward to seeing a better quality version.
I've seen it a couple times and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing it again.
