Rating: 4/5 -- Whiplash is like one of those Buddy Rich solos the kid idolizes: hot, sweaty and in-your-face. Low Down is like the version of Billy Strayhorn's Lush Life played in one of this film's club scenes: somber, moody and cool to the touch.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
John Hawkes does his usual fine work portraying Albany as a loose and easygoing guy who loves his daughter and his music but can't shake the demons that eventually will consume him. Fanning is heartbreaking...
It's a melancholy, evocative, beautifully made memory piece, unblinking and unromanticized, a lovely film that brings great emotion and a dead-on feeling for time, place and recaptured mood to a story that is as universal as it is personal.
Los Angeles Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- Fanning's performance in this mostly reactive role could scarcely be improved; we understand every tremor of feeling in Amy from watching her move and listen and have her heart broken.
Music, heroin, and fatherhood on the fringe Full Review
A must-see for a very particular audience.
East Bay Express
Certainly one of the best biopics of an artist I have seen in a long time. Full Review
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
This biography chronicles the life of Joe Albany, a famous pianist, from the eyes of his daughter as she struggles to see him beat his drug addiction amidst the jazz scene of the 1960s and '70s.
