Rating: 2.5/4 -- Dickey would have made a strong impression regardless. But it turns out he can act, and sing, and has a genuine magnetism that combines with an endearing quality to create a highly appealing screen presence. Full Review

3.5 stars out of 4 -- At its best, BLAZE feels like a cinematic translation of not just Blaze Foley’s life but his music, anchored by two incredibly likable, lived-in performances.

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Hawke pieces together an impressive and thought-provoking tribute with a Texas-sized heart and the kind of performances that awards are made for. Even when you know what's coming, Blaze haunts you like a classic country song. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's a lengthy, inebriating, and casually funny experience that didn't fall into the usual traps of biographical films. Full Review
