Ryan Bingham and Jeff Bridges – The Weary Kind

by oz on February 6, 2010

I’m a bit out of touch with pop culture and the movie scene. My wife and drove by a theater today and I hadn’t heard of a single movie that was playing. It comes as no surprise to myself that I also hadn’t heard of the movie Crazy Heart about a drunken, broke down country singer starring a very Waylon Jennings inspired Jeff Bridges and Robert Duvall.

The movie and the theme song, written by Ryan Bingham, are nominated for some awards. Here’s Ryan performing “The Weary Kind” followed by Bridges performing in an interview. I might actually get out of the house for this one. You can find the trailer here.

Hey, I went out and saw this last night. Maybe a pretty pedestrian movie for the average person, but if you like country music, western scenery, and lots of footage of people playing guitars, pedal steel, etc. (or all three), you’ll dig it. I had a great time.

I saw Ryan B. a few years back at Park West opening for DBT. I knew then he was a special musician. Good for him. Some movies are defined by their soundtrack. Let’s hope this is one of them.

It would seem the Producers of Crazy Heart banked on the success of last year’s has been story The Wrestler, and rightly so. Jeff Bridges’, Bad Blake is sexier than Mickey Rourke’s character and, well, sexier than Mickey Rourke, but not by much. This film portrays the same theme of a man reaching an age past his prime, still trying to cling to an old life that no longer celebrates him. Both character’s receive marginal recognition for their contribution once made, but it doesn’t ground them or give them a sense of place.
