Movie Info

QUINCY is an intimate look into the life of icon Quincy Jones. A unique force of nature in music and popular culture for 70 years, Jones has transcended musical and racial boundaries; his story is inextricably woven into the fabric of Black America. Beyond his own acclaim as a trumpeter, producer, conductor, composer and arranger, Jones's inimitable gift to discover the biggest talents of the past half of the century is unprecedented. He has mentored and cultivated the careers of young talents, from Lesley Gore and Michael Jackson to Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith. With his boundless energy, Jones has also awakened many generations to the significance of humanitarian issues. QUINCY captures the kind of life that can only belong to a man with a big heart and an even bigger will to live forever. Directed by Rashida Jones (Angie Tribeca and Hot Girls Wanted) and Alan Hicks (Keep On Keepin' On), QUINCY, a Netflix original documentary, seamlessly threads personal vérité moments with private archival footage to reveal a legendary life like no other.

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

A comprehensive, loving, and yet surprisingly clear-eyed documentary portrait...

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

His triumphs from the earliest points of his career onward are exhilarating; the racism he is obliged to endure throughout is infuriating.

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

This documentary on his life's work offers a personalized glimpse into a bygone world of entertainment and the legacy of racism that black artists still grapple with today.

September 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Tireless, ultra-talented and exceedingly charismatic, he emerges as a survivor in a film that spends too much time on his accolades and not enough on deciphering what makes this treasure of an octogenarian tick.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

For those unfortunate souls who only know Jones as the producer of "Thriller" or, more recently, a giver of deliriously entertaining interviews, "Quincy" presents a streamlined and convincing case for taking a much deeper dive into his accomplishments.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

It's an enjoyable and intermittently revelatory documentary that does a fine job of celebrating its subject's accomplishments while never quite achieving the degree of intimacy that it strives for.
