Product Description

On the gritty streets of LA, the destinies of four people desperate for connection and redemption are about to collide. Jessica Biel, Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker and Eddie Redmayne lead a top-notch cast in this powerful thriller about an overwhelmed erotic dancer, a grieving husband who has lost his will to live, a terminally ill ex-con and a pathologically shy mortician. With Kris Kristofferson, Lisa Kudrow and Patrick Swayze in unforgettable supporting roles, this film movingly chronicles the imperfect lives of people teetering on the edge of despair and the miracles that bring them back.

Following the lives of a number of individuals with troubled, and fairly unhappy existances probably sounds like like a depressing or boring watch. This film though is far from that. What you get is a look into the lives of people who in the main are decent and caring people who deserve better than life, or there own flaws have left them with. Its a film that proves you never no whats round the corner, good or bad. Not every situation is to desperate to recover from, even when the things that people allow to encumber and control thier lives actually happen.

Here is a classic example of why a movie needs a good story; it needs to be based on a book or a good screenplay; it needs a writer! there is none of that here.
Instead we have an idea and some well known actors, but actors are simply mules - without a story they just pour on the emotion without any rhyme or reason.
and so it is here, and here is a list of Powder Blue's cliche's: tragic tart with a heart who has a dying child; ex-con, gangster who regrets his wasted life - who is also dying; black guy who wants to kill himself after his wife dies; transexual tart with a heart who does kill herself; nerdy geek who finds love. Morbido and libido in abundance but no mojo.
And in the midst of all the despair and darkness we have ludicrous fantasy sequences about heaven and the afterlife.
It's all just a total mess!
Ray Liotta has moments of greatness but even he could not help save this flop.
Jessica Biel is a great stripper, but couldn't she be allowed to be sexy and finish a strip without running off stage in self-indulgent tears?!
This movie should be shown to all aspiring filmmakers as an example of how NOT to make a movie...

Gripping story, you are introduced to the characters in a short part of their lives when hope is distant. The miracles that bring them back from despair and how they influence each others lives. A small gritty part for Patrick, still my favourite actor.

Great film, so much so that I ordered another copy for a soul mate of mine who I know would recommend the film also.
Forest is a great actor with his own signature style and is late in getting the recognition that his talent deserves. He excels in the movie "The Butler" that I would also recommend. Buy BOTH if you like Forest !

Just fantastic, love, love, love, this quirky little drama about life's pains and human emotions. Eddie is of course amazing but who really surprised me in this little gem was Jessica Biel. Great performance as the feisty lap dancer with a terminally ill son , never judge a book by its cover...

By Albatross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 10 Jun. 2013
Format: DVD
The film `Crash' was a hit, as it used multiple characters' individual narratives to intertwine a story which all ties up together. Here, `Powder Blue' attempts to do the same - with mixed results.

First of all, I didn't like it. But it is quite a long film and I persevered. Now, looking back on it, I'm glad I did. It's not as good as Crash and it is kind of overloaded with sentimentality - every scene seems to be trying to get you to cry for each and every character. Perhaps it was nice to see some Hollywood characters feeling as down and miserable as the rest of us?

Either way, the performances are pretty good - naturally from Forest Whittaker and Ray Liotta, but also from Jessica Biel (who comes in for more than her fair share of acting criticism these days).

It is certainly a slow-burner. Not much happens during the beginning and it takes a while to get going. So, although it doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel in terms of film-making, it's not a bad little piece, but I feel it's one of those films that you have to be well in the mood for to really appreciate. It should probably come with a warning not to watch it if you don't want to be depressed or brought down by one tale of woe after the next.

A generous 4/5 stars.

I found it deeply revitalising to watch. It's a moral story without the preaching. Throughout most of the story the characters are out of their depth, looking for a way to restore their life. They all go on a journey. Some come out alive, some don't. But all move on somehow. It really reminds me of an H. C. Andersen story, a great fairy tale.

With so many well known actors, I imagined this film to be far better than it actually is. I found it to be a bit of a mish mash of something and nothing. It never really got going for me, although it could have been so much better with such a good cast and an inter-connecting storyline. Not sure if it was that the film was gloomy or just a poor script, but somehow it didn't gel as it should have done. It is an okay film, but could have been much better.
