Reviews:
"Jeff Bridges is the whole show here as a cowboy-style crooner who wrestles with his demons in ways that easily engage an audiences' sympathies." - 11/29/2009 Variety


"Bridges more than delivers the goods for Oscar eligibility. He is the mesmerizing, dangerous, unpredictable heart of CRAZY HEART." - 11/29/2009 Hollywood Reporter


4 stars out of 5 -- "A richly-realized, deeply-heartfelt character study in the vein of TENDER MERCIES and BOUND FOR GLORY....[A] sterling directing debut by actor Scott Cooper..." - 12/01/2009 Box Office


"Bridges' guileless performance makes this piquant little indie tale of country music, redemption, and the love of a pretty younger woman such a sad-song charmer." -- Grade: B+ - 12/18/2009 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "Cooper, an actor himself, shows a keen eye for authentic detail and an instinct for bringing out the best in the cast. Maggie Gyllenhaal is funny, touching and vital..." - 12/24/2009 Rolling Stone


3 stars out of 4 -- "[The film is] raised by the heartfelt and raw portrayal that Bridges makes look effortless. And he can sing, too." - 12/16/2009 USA Today


"Cooper, himself an actor and musician with an eye for authenticity, has given Bridges the opportunity to deliver an all-out performance....It's Bridges' gift to make it seem honest and real." - 12/11/2009 Los Angeles Times


"CRAZY HEART is blessed with so many marvelous moments, lovely lines and vivid characters that it's hard to know where to begin..." - 12/16/2009 Wall Street Journal


"[A] small movie perfectly scaled to the big performance at its center....You hear songs by Townes van Zandt and Waylon Jennings, and you may also think of Willie Nelson and some others." - 12/16/2009 New York Times


"Bridges' humane, deeply empathetic lead performance makes it easy to root for one man's redemption." -- Grade: B+ - 12/14/2009 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 4 -- "It's a measure of Bridges, Duvall, Gyllenhaal and Harper that they create completely different characters." - 12/23/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"A quiet, conventional film with a surprisingly firm grip, writer/director Scott Cobb's CRAZY HEART will choke you up the same way it kept you hanging in over its shaggy, two-hour shuffle: effortlessly." - 12/16/2009 Movieline


3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] poignant portrait of a washed up country singer....It's Bridges himself who makes this straightforward amble down the rocky road to redemption one worth taking..." - 01/26/2010 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "[P]layed with a strength of feeling....It is deceptively affecting; a classic both in form and quality -- this year's THE WRESTLER." - 02/12/2010 Empire


"CRAZY HEART's energies and its real interest are centred in its superb depiction of a musician's life on the road, right down to the high-calibre country songs..." - 03/01/2010 Sight and Sound Critic


3 stars out of 4 -- "The songs are catchy, and there's also a sense of realism and believability throughout..." - 04/20/2010 Premiere
