The man, the myth, the legend... Quincy Jones
This was an intriguing look into the life of a man who accomplished more than most people could ever dream of in a lifetime. The film itself was co-written and co-directed by Alan Hicks and Rashida Jones (his daughter).
My main reasoning for watching this was the fact that it was included on the shortlist for the 91st Oscars (original song) "Keep Reachin'" by Qunicy himself (featuring Chaka Khan). The irony is that you feel the history in this song! You feel Micheal Jackson, you feel Stevie Wonder. It definitely fits with the narrative of the film and shows the man still has it!
I wasn't a huge fan of the film as a whole, I appreciated bits and pieces of it and the overall story of what this man has went through and overcome is awe inspiring! I feel that you could really tell that the two mainly in-charge of the film are new to the medium.
I don't want to come off as hating the documentary, because I didn't. I just didn't walk away feeling that I understand the story behind this legend! I will admit I know far more now than before but there's more to a good documentary than just that.
Because that's what life's really about.
