The story of one of the most infamous books ever written, "The Anarchist Cookbook," and the role it's played in the life of its author, now 65, who wrote it at 19 in the midst of the counterculture upheaval of the late '60s and early '70s.
On a snowy night in February 1972, celebrated jazz musician Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife Helen during a gig at a club in New York City. The murder sent shockwaves through the jazz community, and the memory of the event still haunts those who knew the Morgans. This feature documentary by Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin is a love letter to two unique personalities and the music that brought them together. A film about love, jazz and America.
Seen at the Viennale 2016: This one is straight like a motorway in the desert. Nothing substantial is added to breathe in some life into this documentary. The usual interviews with musicians that were around with Morgan. Fun to see was a program in the window of a jazz club from the '60s with Lee Morgan Quintett playing today and Keith Jarrett the next day. Having seen Keith Jarrett this summer in Vienna it brings Lee Morgan closer to today. I did not know that Lee Morgan was murdered by his wife in his mid-30's. A main item of this movie is a music cassette from 1996 with an interview of his wife and murder Helen. One month after the interview Helen died. Instead of this documentary it would have been much more interesting to produce a radio show with the length of two hours, playing Lee Morgan tunes alternating with the interview of Helen.
