Storyline

A jazz saxophonist loses his capability to play when he is injured in a shooting at a café where he was playing. He sinks into depression when everyone charges in to take care of him, including his ex-wife. However, he discovers a stone with a telephone number attached. Returning the stone, he meets a young aspiring actress who in one of those film coincidences is listening to his music. Soon the two begin an affair which is fouled by his over-obsessiveness with her which costs them both a job at a restaurant. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Pretty good debut by Auster!
14 September 1998 | by aasenSee all my reviews

Lulu, as I prefer to call it, is a sentimental, yet mysterious movie. One has to feel that this is Auster in a nutshell, covering humans dark sides as well as their fabulous way of finding meaning. Auster has done a good job when it comes to the actors and actresses, they are perfect. The soundtrack is perhaps the factor that makes the darkness of the movie even more conclusive. Whenever the CD is out, I have to buy it! Overall, Auster did a pretty good job with Lulu. Recommended, also for non -Auster fans.
