comprehensive look at hip hop -- so much more than concert footage
i found Rhyme & Reason to be a no-nonsense guide to hip hop and rap for the uneducated/uninitiated. as an outsider, i now really understand and appreciate the genre as a complete art form and find myself keeping up with the music and artists when before i would just change the station. i think Spirer's view was right on and that the look of the film is edgy yet artistic. It is so nice to see a modern film about music that doesn't look like a music video (no super fast cuts that are so prominent in today's films in general).
If you want to know the medium, view Rhyme and Reason -- it enlightened me!
