SWEET AND LOWDOWN (1999) 4 stars

A gem of a movie that is both a tribute to jazz and Fellini's La Strada. Sean Penn is amazing and Morton does a perfect job playing the mute and adorable love interest. The mockumentary approach suits the material perfectly and it's great to see Allen book-end the film with his comments. The jazz score is also an added bonus. It’s Allen's best film since Husbands and Wives.
