A Tribe Called Quest shown as made up of complex, gifted, flawed human beings, not as flawless cardboard characters.
I’m troubled that some reviewers object to the fact that this film doesn’t ignore the considerable tensions that existed within A Tribe Called Quest.
This is a documentary, not a propaganda film… the backstage dynamics between the members of ATCQ over the years (both positive and negative) are highly relevant to the film, assuming that it wasn’t meant as a puff piece.
If anything, Rapaport held back a bit MORE than he should have, which is part of the reason why I don’t give the film an even higher rating, as I would (for example) to the brutally revealing documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
Also, anyone who watches the film and doesn’t get some sense of why the group meant so much to so many of us (in its artistry and in its spirit) just wasn’t paying attention.
I do hope that the DVD extras spend more time on the extended Native Tongue Family… while it certainly isn’t ignored in the film, the Native Tongue Family deserves at the very least its own mini- documentary.
Best Hip-Hop documentary ever!!!
First off, a big thank you to Michael Rapaport for doing this. And he truly directed a wonderful documentary. I grew up on a tribe called quest, however, I am an African,living in Africa and those were the days before the Internet, so I really never heard any news surrounding the group. This documentary fills in all these gaps for me, finally made me understand what made ATCQ tick and such a brilliant hip-hop group. The director really did a great job balancing the views from both protagonists, Q-tip and Phife. Q-tip really comes across as a musical genius and Phife as the real funky diabetic (never understood this until watching this movie) and I had never heard Ali Shaheed speak, but I was hanging on to every word of his. I think M. Rapaport should have given Ali more time. And Jarobi, the y. Nice dude, from the documentary I’d wish, he had not left the group when he did, he fitted in just like anybody else.
Finally, the live shows were amazing. I wish I had had the opportunity to attend just one of them, anyway, if ATCQ ever come to Accra, Ghana, I’ll be the first in line to buy tickets.
Great documentary, great story-telling from the director, highly recommended to any music lover out there.
