Watching this film, you come no more close to ''understanding'' where the music in Thelonious Monk comes from than you do about where he gets his fashion tips. But the music IS extraordinary, despite his eccentricities which, apparently, were involuntary.

Watching this movie you understand where his beautifully off-kilter harmonies come from: the man was twisted. He turned in circles to a beat only he could hear and interpret. Soaring and a little sad, this is a great documentary about one of the greatest composers of the 20th century
