Chet

By Thursday, December 29, 2011 Writer No Comments

The latest of Anthony’s sporadic forays into screenwriting, “Chet” is a non-linear biopic based on the tumultuous life and times of trumpeter/crooner Chet Baker. Three artistic souls spend an evening listening to Baker’s albums, discussing his work, struggles with drugs, and the universal artistic struggles Baker’s legacy represents. Also, the script’s climax offers a plausible explanation regarding the mystery surrounding Baker’s bizarre death in Amsterdam in the late eighties.
