Don't listen to any rubbish critic reviews...
This is a fitting retrospective of one of music's heroes.
Quincy Jones is a giant of creativity - and as a music writer myself I gained so much from the little wise asides and musings that constantly crop up from past recorded interviews and in his narration ..
It's an astounding story of a life well lived, and worth watching for recognition of his incredible contribution to art, culture, politics and charity. The fact he's a fallible human with a warm heart makes it even more enjoyable a ride.
The film was made with his daughter Rashida at the helm - which adds to the beauty of the tale in my eyes: family is hugely important to Quincy.
Any critic wishing there had been more dishing of the dirt is missing the point (I'm looking at you Charles Bramesco).
Great film - make sure you can hear it well, as the soundtrack is golden.
