The real New Orleans that is probably gone forever.
New Orleans is a major character in this film. Not the French Quarter as we usually see but the slums that gave us the music and character of this unique place in all the world. You have to ask yourself why and how did a first time unknown director get two major stars to make this budget film in three weeks in August of 2004. The answer is script, script and script. A good story seems harder to find than $100 million in LA. We have remakes of remakes of TV shows and comic books. The story is very good; the look of the film is great and Travolta and Johansson bring their gifts to the lead roles. Deb Unger is particularly fetching and dignified. The real New Orleans that is probably gone forever after the Katrina disaster is reason enough to cherish this film and add it to your permanent collection. Also loved the way JT used that old Gibson LG-1 as a prop and actually played it and sang a few tunes!
Real as down-home dirt
You don’t see many movies where the music fits in seamlessly and is just as important as a supporting player. Bobby Long used music perfectly in this way, as a complement to the emotional dimensions of a story paced by poetry. Remember the great movie Tender Mercies? There is a kinship between the two films, although their stories are very different. In both movies you have a wounded genius, a musical milieu, and Bobby Long (like Robert Duvall) finds his redemption through love. There is much more to the experience of watching this movie, lots and lots of little pleasures, and it takes its own time showing you. You just have to see this one. Travolta is as good as it gets. Hey, Scarlett Johansson is worth the price of admission all by herself, but the many supporting roles — including Gabriel Macht and Deborah Kara Unger — are what make this movie real as down-home dirt. I don’t know who Shainee Gabel, the director, is, but she took an almost-forgotten novel and she made it sing. I can still hear its echo in my soul.
