5.0 out of 5 stars Round Midnight - a review 6 Nov 2005
By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Bertrand Tavernier's film is a classic study of the life of a jazz musician and the constant struggle for their art.Dexter Gordon gives a remarkable performance as the world weary Dale Turner who's fictional character is based around the life of Bud Powell but there are many similarities to his own life on display here.The struggle with alcohol,money problems,his battle with ill health and his much heralded return to America after living in Europe for many years.
Where the director earns great credit is the way he doesn't attempt to make a film showing the jazz life as a glamorous one but merely an everyday existence giving an insight into the life of a musican away from the performance arena.
As well as Gordon's great performance there are a host of other jazz names appearing including Herbie Hancock,Wayne Shorter and Tony williams.There is also a cameo from Martin Scorsese as the promoter who takes Turner back to America.
All in all a great study of the jazz life for all serious followers of the greatest music in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Round Midnight (Jazz on Film) 30 Sep 2009
By J. Luck
Format:DVD
Round Midnight. The best film featuring jazz to be made appart from Clint Eastwoods exhilarating "BIRD" life story of Charlie Parker. In Round Midnight Dexter Gordon is cast to perfection as the laconic but talented jazzman Dale Turner. The story is basically set in Paris. Where Dale is trying to recover his stuttering career, and at the same time shake the "monkey" of alcohol addiction off his back. Fortunatly for Dale he is befriended by Francis, a Parisian Jazz nut who helps him through this dark period to a succesful return to New York. This a well made and thought provoking film, which deals with the subject matter in a non sensational grown up manner. If, as i do, you love your jazz, you will not be disappointed. There is plenty of music to appreciate with the brilliant Mr Gordon leading the way, and supported by many jazz greats! Best wishes and Enjoy.
The West Countrys best, and only Jazz Fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Jazz films ever 5 Oct 2010
By Bob R
Format:DVD
I had searched for years to find this movie in Region 2 format and eventually found it on Amazon. This movie and Bird ( Clint Eastwood directed ) are probably the best Jazz movies ever and Dexter Gordon is outstanding as the lead character. The scenes in the jazz club are very moody and the soundtrack by Herbie Hancock ( also in the movie ) is brilliant.
Top movie for jazz fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A window on post-war jazz life... 22 Sep 2010
By Tyrone
Format:DVD
Mercifully, most jazz people don't live this way anymore but if you'd like to get inside the original wave I recommend the wonderful Ken Burns: Jazz [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] documentary & this beautifully played out movie. Warm & sad in equal measures, the whole thing's excellently put together but Oscar-nominated Dexter Gordon probably should have won the award for best actor.
