Huge fan of John Coltrane and a Love Supreme in particular. The presence of the eternal (that love light within us all) in that work is undeniable and overwhelming. John and Alice are relationship goals, one thing i wish is that they would talk about Alice a bit more because I love her so!
Coltrane is a massive giant of talent who both fell prey to and ultimately transcended and redefined jazz. This film is a largely straight forward approach to a man who's work broke molds. It's a slightly underwhelming approach to such an innovative artist but still well worth the journey.
"A seductive piece of middle-of-the-road documentary filmmaking; it gives you the basics, but beautifully. (You could walk into this movie knowing nothing about Coltrane and walk out an impassioned convert.)" - Owen Gleiberman, Variety. I'm a diehard Coltrane fan so although this was Coltrane 101, I'm just grateful Scheinfeld gave it a go.
