An amazingly shot and visceral experience. Viewed on the IMAX screen this was all-encompassing and overwhelming; the scale of the vision and the layers of sound made this very confronting film watching. Must see.
How can a movie about a young man raised by an activist mother in the Black Panthers and who personified this era be so unengaging. What starts as a potentially great film about politics and resistance turns into a (very) long, and very disappointing film. Why turning the stories of iconic rap and hip hop artists into great films is such a challenge is the question that remains unanswered. Watch Hip Hop Evolution instead.
