[ No spoilers ] For most people, if asked to name a Jeff Bridges movie, more than half would say Starman. I’ve always felt that it was his best role. Until today.

Jeff Bridges as Bad Blake, a wash-up, alcoholic country singer reduced to singing in bowling alleys for chump change will go down in cinema history.

Bridges’ performance as Bad Blake has never and will never be equaled. He looks the part of a tired old man who’s seen the bottom of a shot glass too many times. He’s overweight and poorly groomed and even though his voice is still able to hold the attention of everyone in the room, you know that he was so much better when he was at the top of the charts.

I think that’s part of the magic of this movie, you know who he was before the bottle took over his life, without resorting the cheesy flashback. Maggie Gyllenhaal is great as the love interest. And what can I say about Robert Duvall as Bad’s mentor. He’s Tender Mercy all over again.
