Movie Review: Sweet And Lowdown

Bit of a letdown
Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown is a loving valentine to jazz, his longtime passion.

 The fictional hero is Emmet Ray (Sean Penn), a jazz guitarist who squandered his talent on booze, sex and an inferiority complex.

Sweet but less filling
Once upon a time, Woody Allen made movies that were funny, clever, biting and memorable. Lately, if a film by the elder statesman of satirical cinema meets just two or three of those criteria, we're lucky.

 Sweet and Lowdown, opening today at the Garneau Theatre, does manage to be at times charming, touching and even wistfully funny, but its appeal might be limited to fans of Allen and of the subject matter - the late, great era of 1920s and '30s jazz.
