Editorial Reviews

Inspired by the life of Hank Garland, CRAZY tells the story of the legendary guitar player who fought the studio oppression of Nashville in the 1950 s and played with the likes Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and Elvis Presley. Garland pioneered music from country to jazz, but a hot temper and whirlwind romantic life would all too soon lead to tragedy. CRAZY captures one of the greatest musicians of the past century and the legacy he left behind.

I really thought that I'd enjoy this movie but each minute, each scene just kept displaying historical inaccuracies which were completely pointless historical inaccuracies that eventually just wore me down and killed the movie for me. In other words, they could have gotten these dates and characters and events right without harming the movie's drama in any way. For example, the real opening scene of Hank at the Opry-Hank Williams wasn't on the Opry in 1945 and his song that was used wasn't written yet. To mention a few more stupidities - Billy Byrd wasn't a hopeless drunk. The Korean War wasn't still going on in 1955. Just to mention a few. . .

The other scenes of Hank establishing himself in Nashville are interesting and the name dropping and glimpses of the stars are enjoyable.

The real problem with the movie is the incredibly bad writing and directing which the fine acting of this cast, all of whom were unfamiliar to me, could not overcome. Doesn't it really say it all that all of the confusion and murkiness and incomprehensible motivation of some of the characters, particularly Evelyn after Hank's accident, is understandable only after watching the deleted scenes. It's certainly suggested that Evelyn set up, in Mafia like fashion, Hank's accident but the deleted scene shows her and her boyfriend the record producer sending Hank to the asylum. I really didn't think that all of the previous cliches of the long suffering, ignored, and lonely wife alone were quite enough to justify attempting to have him killed and failing that, shipped off to an asylum. This particular deleted scene would have made the film's ending a bit clearer. Not really though-at the films end did you know whether Hank knew what Evelyn had done to him and did he still love or hate her?

I saw this movie about a year ago at a small theater in St. Charles, Illinois. Before that, I had heard of Hank Garland, but never realized how much he contributed to the Nashville community with his fine guitar work..working with Brenda Lee..Patsy Cline..and many others. I REALLY enjoyed the cameo appearance by Mandy Barnett, whom I consider one of the BEST singers Nashville has to offer. Her renditions of "Walking After Midnight"..and "I Fall To Pieces"are stunning!!!I only wish we could have more music from this lady, who hasn't had a CD out for some years now. The only negative..musicwise..is they did not have the foresight to let Mandy sing the title song"Crazy".That went to Diana Krall..who does a decent job...BUT Mandy would of "knocked it out of the box"!!

Bravo..Rent this Movie..It was worth the long wait to get to DVD!!!

Ummm...was this really the Hank Garland story? Or was it, more accurately, inspired by some events that may or may not have happened in Hank Garland's life? Unfortunately, the filmmakers seemed to use a heaping helping of artistic license with the timeline, the characters, the incidents, and the casting. First and foremost, they cast Waylon Payne (who is excellent, I might add) as Garland. Payne looks like a hunky James Dean, handsome & cool, full head of blonde locks and Elvis-style sideburns, even before Elvis came on the scene. Garland looked more like Paul Giamatti, complete with receding hairline.

I'll keep my anal-retentive music fandom to a minimum, but the timeline of Garland's musical growth is way off, with Elvis telling him to record the Garland signature tune "Sugarfoot Rag", even though Garland recorded it with Red Foley when Elvis was in about the 10th grade. Also, I'm not exactly certain, but I would hazard a guess that Garland wasn't suddenly exposed to jazz by encountering a Wes Montgomery gig in Chicago. Jazz was born & raised in the South, so I can guarantee he had been exposed to jazz played on a guitar long before this apocryphal event in the movie. Case in point, Tal Farlow was from North Carolina and Chet Atkins & Jimmy Bryant from Georgia. Many more, of course. And, most "country" guitarists at the time pretty much played swing jazz, just with cowboy outfits on. Listen to Bob Wills, Hank Williams, etc. and hear what I mean.

As mentioned before, Waylon Payne was excellent and I hope we see more of him. The supporting characters were OK, but some of the "Southern" accents were atrocious (where is "Buh-locksy" anyway?

How much is factual with car accident part is questionable. However, it shows a woman at first loving Hank's absession with his music which is necessary to be great. Then she gets bored with continuous obsession to stay the best. Rather than discuss getting a divorce, this lady (of-the-street earlier) gets very evil/resentful and gets to Hank's head with her trash-cheating and drives the naive (naive with his pick of women) musician 'crazy.' This lady was sociopatic but kept it well hidden until the right man-opportunity came along. Such a tragic story.

This movie is about guitar legend, Hank Garland. I am a friend of his brother and sister in law and with Waylon Payne, the actor playing Hank. Though I think it is well done, in this case my opinion is biased.
