A disaster
26 January 2001 | by _DanSee all my reviews

This attempt to make an artsy documentary about Quincy Jones is totally missed. We don't understand anything the people interviewed are saying. Everything is mixed in an incompréhensible mish-mash. It's a crying shame with all these great artists interviewed who could have had a lot of things to say about The Man Quincy. Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, etc..

The poor director of this thing have apparently never worked in this town after. No surprise with all the important names who were involved in this disaster! 0/10
