'Round Midnight (1986)

4 Stars (out of 4)

Our Man in Paris

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Considered the equal of Clint Eastwood's Bird, Bertrand Tavernier's jazz film 'Round Midnight stars real-life jazz legend Dexter Gordon in a brilliant Oscar-nominated performance. He plays Dale Turner, who works the clubs of Paris where his most appreciative audience is. Francois Cluzet plays a smitten fan who takes the alcohol-addled musician under his wing and convinces him to write music again. Tavernier's striking widescreen frame established the rainy, neon-and-smoke filled world of the jazz film. The director frequently holds his camera still to capture some exquisite musical jams. Herbie Hancock's score won an Oscar. Martin Scorsese appears in a small role.
