Director Amir Bar-Lev doesn't push the irony. He doesn't push anything, really. He just
recounts the whole sordid story of the Penn State football scandal
again, then draws, or tries to draw, some lessons from it.
Preiss' movie does a consistently
excellent job of explaining the lure of jazz, and the psychology of
addicts, their enablers and their children, without explaining anything.
We just watch and listen and understand.
