Synopsis

Twenty years on, in this re-release which offers a uniquely personal insight into the life of the late jazz great Chet Baker, renowned photographer/filmmaker Bruce Weber travels with the elusive jazz vocalist and trumpeter, weaving together excerpts from Italian B movies, rare performance footage, and candid interviews with Baker, musicians, friends, battling ex-wives and his children - in what turned out to be the last year of his life. Winner of the 1989 Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival, nominated for an Academy Award, Let's Get Lost has become an important document in both the career of the filmmaker and the life of a jazz legend.
