Mingus: Charlie Mingus 1968

Crew
Directed by Thomas Reichman


Mingus is a frank, tender and sometimes shocking cinema verite portrait of the legendary bassist/composer as he faces hard times. Footage of Mingus on stage in a nightclub near Boston is intercut with scenes of the embittered musician in his cluttered New York loft, where-- while awaiting eviction-- he speaks candidly on topics ranging from music to sex to racism.

Reviews

"Mingus is wry, bitter, resigned, yet always proud... Reichman's supple juxtaposition of joy... and great pain."
The Washington Post
