Powder Blue is the story of a pivotal week in the life of four individuals struggling to keep their lives together. Charlie (Forest Whitaker) is an ex-priest battling suicidal tendencies due to the anguish of losing his wife. Jack (Ray Liotta) is a recently released hit man who recently found out about the cancer in his body. Qwerty (Eddie Redmayne) is an awkward, twenty-something mortician whose asthma acts up when he tries to talk to women. And Rose Johnny (Jessica Biel) is a stripper trying to pay the medical bills of her comatose son. Each is hurting immensely. Each is looking for some glimmer of hope.
This is a strange film in terms of the press that it has been getting. The overwhelming majority of articles and news surrounding this project have narrowly focused on the fact that Jessica Biel has a small handful of topless scenes. In fact, one online site boldly proclaims, "this film is always going to be known for one thing -- Jessica Biel was topless in it." Many other sites which have written pieces on this movie have uniformly dubbed Powder Blue "the Jessica Biel Stripper Movie." Commentary on the hyper-sexualized yet stuck in a 15-year-old boy's body nature of American culture aside, this film is much more than a stripper movie and will hopefully be remembered as a good piece of art, rather than the fact that one of the actors shows some skin.
The core of this film is the nature of love. What is love? How do we find it? What happens when we lose it?Read more ›
The parallel stories of four individuals meeting by chance in this movie only to show the big picture: How lonely people can be living in a big city like LA. With a star cast, I recommend this movie that has a very modern urban plot and photography similar to "Crash". It was entertaining and I would recommend it for fans of Jessica Biel (she plays a stripper hooked on drugs), her role in this movie is far different from previous ones she starred in movies. Her character's story is sad and troubling. But, she is very convincing as Rose Johnny. An unexpected chain of events will take place and it could change her life or not.
It was a good movie and I recommend it. It was very entertaining. The R rating is appropriated due to the thematic of the movie.
Blu-ray looks and sounds fine.
This picture has unforgettable moments, that remain in our memory although it never reaches the coveted dramatic oneness.
Forest Whitaker adds his powerful presence in his role as a troubled man in search of love. Ray Liotta shows us his huge talent in this secondary role. But the most surprising fact was to watch Jessica Biel in the central role around which two stories are articulated. For the first time, I mu8st confess she chews the scennery in the most complex role of her career and the final outcome was succesful.
Haunting, thoughtful and gloomy film superbly photographed and better edited.

Works beautifully! I recommend wearing an oven mitt or equivalent because the handle gets hot even with the guard. I recommend this to anyone who uses a charcoal grill. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Todd Stigers

Very sad at the end.
Anyway, disc arrived fine.
She reveals a little hip and in dim light, a little bust, but you'll miss it if you're not paying attention. Read more
