Stormy Monday (1988)

Tommy Lee Jones, Sting, Sean Bean, Melanie Griffith! Wasn't expecting to see a single name I recognized at the start of this, but it turned out to be like a star-studded older counterpart to Nightcrawler or... something like that.

The world was alive in the eighties. And the details here too. The crash. The funnel of flame behind the policemen. The bridge at the back of the street still under construction - towering like an alien vessel above the brick and concrete. The 'do you take credit cards' intro... times were different then.

It's a jazzy, noire-like intimate romance/club type film, featuring a few eventful nights, a few heavy players, the lovebirds a couple of involuntary participants in their game... that's it.

The girl here really looked like Kristen Stewart btw. In her prime.

And just so you know The Krakow Jazz Ensemble - main soundtrack band - are/were an actual band. With a chaotic kind of jazz. They helped build up the atmosphere too. I loved the tone, and I loved the romantic focus.

This movie really sucked me in unexpectedly, but ended the same way as these movies usually do. A little inconclusive.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
