The Battle of the Jazz Guitarist Reviews:

"The War of the Jazz Guitarist" is a strange but rather humorous film. It mostly consists of a guitarist sitting and testing his music. During this lengthy piece, messages from the filmmaker (the son of the musician) begin flashing along the screen. At first, they are cute relevant--such as notification about the guy testing the melody and why this is being filmed. However, over time, the filmmaker begins to ramble--mostly about how he really doesn't think he has an attention-deficit problem. Then, he REALLY begins bouncing around to various subject and even changes the soundtrack. It's one of these weird and twisted movies you just have to see for yourself. It's quite funny and never takes itself seriously-- which is why I enjoyed it so much.


Maxwell Columbus was once a famous guitar user in his home of Fiji, but when he came to the US it didn't really work out too well for him, resulting in regular jobs to help his wife and young son, although his testing did return when he got laid off. When his son, Mark, gets cash from UCLA to create a green-screen project, Tag decides to create it around his father playing. However while filming something else is going on too.It has to be told but this movie really makes you drop your expectations early on. It opens with Maxwell testing the guitar on a tape he made himself. Over this stage (and throughout the film) our "narrator" introduces him and his background via yellow subtitles – the sort that really screams "first-time player of Windows Film Maker". This device really grated on me because it felt like a YouTube upload of someone's father testing a guitar with nothing else to offer. The narration continues as we begin to have basically the same action in front of a green screen and yet it gets messier because the narration loses focus and nothing is different. However it is worth staying with it because this is all part of it.Eventually the movie will receive to something really quite moving and, as the melody is faded out and into "Midnight City", we have the conclusions and they are beautifully done and presented in such a method that the entire movie makes sense. The hero of the narrator has summarized a adventure that we all go on and has done it very well. Tag shows not only understanding but also the ability to bring the viewer quickly with him. In particular this will work for those approaching 30 or older, because this is the time when you begin to see your parents for who they are and also recognize that you are who you are because of them (good and terrible traits). The War of the Jazz Guitarist delivers this idea really well and with well selected melody to close it out, it somehow works – not despite the crappy font on the subs or the messy structure but because of them and another aspects. It feels like nothing but it is well worth staying with – particularly if you are a boy over 30, you'll probably search it just beautifully done.
