Best Drama at Breckenridge Festival of Film
19 June 2008 | by diannanilssonSee all my reviews

As part of the reviewing committee for the Breckenridge Festival of Film, I knew that "Crazy" was a film that had to be shown here!! Crazy won best drama and Waylon Payne won best actor. The music is fabulous as well as the directing, filming and costumes. For an indie, this is very professionally done.

The movie is based on the true story of Hank Garland who played with the musical talents of Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline. I highly recommend this film. Here are some other comments from Breckfilmfest reviewers:

Wow loved this film. very high quality and music was fantastic. story flowed well keeping the attention of those of us watching. watched this with friends and they all loved it and felt it would be film festival quality.

Awesome film.....great acting...FABULOUS music. Totally enjoyed the docu/drama. A must for the fest.

Very well done. A time piece and a great success. Sad story of Hank Garland. A very well told story. Just a bit slow in a couple of places. Good acting and casting and filming. Very well done.
