As a Reed College graduate, it's incredibly difficult to watch Blue Like Jazz without focusing on the school's portrayal. After all, as the backdrop for 19-year-old protagonist Donald Miller's (Marshall Allman) crisis of faith, the Portland campus and its students have a starring role. There are few reasons to see this mediocre and faith-messaged movie other than as another round of Reed scrutiny, and its honor could use a little defense: If Miller failed to penetrate Reed's superficial weirdness and tap into its essential open mindedness, it's his loss.
