A LOVE SUPREME...!
A standard doc on jazz great John Coltrane that pretty much covers what it can since the man died relatively young & he had so much more to give us but what he did give us is awe-inspiring. We have a lot of heavy talent on screen waxing nostalgic about Coltrane from Dr. Cornel West, former president Bill Clinton, Sonny Rollins & of all people Denzel Washington voicing Coltrane's words but the film still has an annoying been there, done that feel which it shouldn't given the subject matter. Not bad but could be better.
