Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser

One of the most acclaimed of all jazz documentaries, the late Charlotte Zwerin's Straight No Chaser masterfully blends archival footage and interviews to paint a vivid portrait of one of jazz's finest pianists and composers, Thelonious Monk. Much of the film is centered around footage shot of Monk from 1967 to 1968, candidly revealing much about Monk's personality, including his dramatic mood swings and eccentric behavior, as well as his sense of humor. Executive producer Clint Eastwood shows his deep love for jazz with the project, and director Zwerin brings the masterful editing and humanist touches from her groundbreaking films with the Maysles documentary team (Gimme Shelter, Salesman and others). 90 minutes
