Overview

Based on the late Charles Willeford's series of hard-boiled crime novels featuring Miami cop Hoke Moseley, the Jonathan Demme-produced Miami Blues opens with the prison release of Frederick Frenger Jr. (Alec Baldwin), a deranged killer who has barely de-boarded his plane before he's killed a Hare Krishna in the airport. Checking into his hotel, Frenger meets up with Susie Waggoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a young prostitute with dreams of domestic life, and the two quickly become romantically involved. Meanwhile, the Hare Krishna murder case is given to Moseley (Fred Ward), a grizzled vet who vows to hunt down Frenger, but may be getting too long in the tooth for the demands of his job.

This film will not appeal to everyone, but it I liked it when it was first released in theaters, and afterwards. Watching it after many years I was again struck with its story and with the performances of all involved. The violence and amorality of the lead character, played by Alex Baldwin, repel many viewers, I suppose, but I thought its point was social criticism. He actually aspires to a shallow and materialistic American way of life, along with his girlfriend, a student who is earning her way through school as a part-time prostitute. The life they share when he is not involved in robbery and car theft is quite ordinary and dull. What's striking is that this type of life is as easy to buy as fast food, which is something of a wry comment on the American dream. The film is quite short and to the point, funny and far from mindless.

Remarkable performances by Fred Ward, Alec Baldwin & Jennifer Jason Leigh. One of those films that some of us wouldn't miss, & some of us wish we hadn't seen. It is intense. And at times violent. But it is definitely worth seeing.
