Ornette: Made in America Reviews

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It's significant that Coleman tells Clarke's cameras that he thought of being an architect or 'brain specialist' before becoming a musician; as a jazz composer, instrumentalist and bandleader, he achieved all his goals.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Heeding Louis Armstrong's 'if you gotta ask you'll never know,' this film does not attempt the impossibility of explicating the difficult music, on which you groove or you don't.

Coleman's life and work are treated as a continuum, which Clarke pulls from at will.

For the sight and sound of the man in action (including some fine archive footage from the early '70s), it's essential viewing for any jazz aficionado.

Shirley Clarke's portraiture eschews cohesive biography and often spirals off into lyrical dissonance.

[A] disappointing muddle of concert footage, unfocused interviews, dated psychedelia, and indifferently staged dramatic scenes centered on jazz great Ornette Coleman.
