Reviews:
"BLAZE is more affecting than most other live-hard/die-ugly music biopics." - 01/21/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"BLAZE, which leaps around in time, telling Blaze Foley’s story by zeroing in on a handful of disparate moments, is beautifully made. It’s an organic slice of life..." - 01/21/2018 Variety


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "At its best, BLAZE feels like a cinematic translation of not just Blaze Foley’s life but his music, anchored by two incredibly likable, lived-in performances." - 08/17/2018 RogerEbert.com


4 stars out of 5 -- "Instead of following biopic blueprints, Hawke directs BLAZE like a Foley song: artful, all over the place and possessed of enough blunt truth and aching tenderness to pull you up short." - 09/04/2018 Rolling Stone
