Running time: 122 minutes. Rated R (drug use, language throughout, sexual content and nudity).

And, frankly, that quick arc does not make for a rich and fulfilling movie story.As expected, director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s woeful film “Back to Black” doesn’t play as the gripping battle of musical genius vs.
