Fun But Flawed Documentary

Quincy (2018)

*** (out of 4)

It's rather sad to think that there's a generation (or more) of people out there who probably don't know the name Quincy Jones but thankfully this documentary from Alan Hicks and Rashida Jones is here for a great educational job. This documentary features interviews with Quincy and several others as we take a look at his life and career.

QUINCY seems to be getting some mixed reviews but I think some of the negative ones are a tad bit unfair but I'll get to more on that in a minute. As far as the film goes, this here is certainly worth watching and especially if you're not overly familiar with who Jones is and why he has been so important to not only the music business but also several other things.

I thought the documentary did a terrific job at showing off Jones' career throughout the years including giving us a great idea of what his childhood was like and what it took for him to get where he did. We get some terrific stories of his early career including some dangerous places he played. We also get some great stories about the people he worked with including Frank Sinatra and of course Michael Jackson.

The one problem I had with the film is the fact that it was co-directed by Jones' daughter and I'm going to guess that this is the reason why a lot of things are overlooked or not discussed. In fact, there's really nothing here that shines any sort of light on some of the more controversial aspects of Jones' life. We hear about failed marriages but we never hear what happened. There were some productions that Jones was behind that weren't a success but we never hear about them here.

It's clear that QUINCY wants to educate newer people to who this great man is and on that level it is a major success and an entertaining one. At the same, with the family involvement you can't help but think this isn't the definitive look at Jones.
