Half home movie, half product placement, and almost completely worthless.
This narcissistic mockumentary is less a film than a full-length promotional video for Roc-a-Fella Records mogul/director Damon Dash.
A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.
Watching Damon Dash's playful movie is like entering a room where a large, too noisy party is going on and never fully adjusting to the dark or the din.
Death of a Dynasty is, like the music it parodies: aggressive, over-the-top, louder than life and in your face.
There is a funny movie to be made from the outrageous egos and excesses of rap music. Death of a Dynasty is not that movie.
Death of a Dynasty is fun stuff, and this is coming from a guy who hasn't bought a hip-hop CD since NWA broke up.
Truly terrible for plenty of reasons, not the least of which being Damon Dash's barely competent directing.
Death of a Dynasty accomplishes what it set out to do -- to make a few laughs.
Sure, having bottles of Armadale vodka crammed into every other shot could be read as a pointed swipe at crass endorsements of luxury liquors. But when you know Armadale is owned by Roc-A-Fella, it looks a lot like crass product placement.
Definitely funny as the hip-hop world pokes fun at itself and others, but it's frequently pointless, especially as the "plot" unfolds.
Dash is a good sport in poking barbed fun at the PR machinations of today's music business.
