The plot was asinine and became tedious, but it is such a joy to watch Dave Brubeck and Charles Mingus. The whole film felt so authentic and lived in. I loved the little jazz performances sprinkled throughout. Just a joy.

The camerawork is phenomenal too. The level of control on display is out of this world. The camera follows its subject perfectly, every time, while framing and blocking the rest of the party perfectly. Watching the camera float through the proceedings was delightful.
