Rapture: Season 1 Reviews

August 26, 2018
For outsiders what the documentary does is provide an interesting window into hip-hop as it stands today artistically and culturally. Indeed, the subject matter is so important and engaging that it might even deserve just a little more.

Documentary on hip-hop artists stays mostly surface-level.

Rapture is an inspiring, celebratory viewing experience, one that will remind you of the humanity that lies within all of us, hip-hop lovers or not.

The episodes flitted between topics and scenes which resulted in a lack of narrative coherence and direction. The snapshots of the artist's lives often felt thrown together and the dialogue chosen could be platitudinous.

Rapture episodes are inconsistent in both quality and in their individual directors and editors' abilities to find and craft a thematic or narrative hook...There's a lot of ground to cover, but the first eight Rapture episodes are a promising start.

The production, animation, and cinematography of Rapture is solid, and as an entry into Netflix's documentary canon, it's a welcome one.
