Blue Like Jazz

Don, a pious nineteen-year-old sophomore at a Texas junior college, impulsively decides to escape his evangelical upbringing for life in the Pacific Northwest at one ofthe most progressive campuses in America, Reed College in Portland. Upon arrival, Reed's surroundings and eccentric student body proves to be far different than he could possibly imagine from the environment from which he came, forcing him to embark on a journey of self-discovery to understand who he is and what he truly believes.

Because it’s primarily about doubt, “Blue Like Jazz” is an interesting anomaly in the faith-based genre of Christian movies. Instead of pounding the pulpit, the movie follows its young, idealistic hero as he pounds books, beers, and secular humanism at Reed College in Portland, Ore. The outcome rarely seems out of God’s hands, and the filmmaking is low-budget-earnest to the point of drabness — it’s not a movie to make converts. But it does give believers and those tottering on the edge something to chew on, and it steadfastly refuses to demonize everybody else.
