| (#slideleft / #swipeleft) this'll take a minute so bear w/ me as i delve into the film #alleyezonme. no, i'm not going to tell you the movie just my assessment. this scene was reenacted toward the end, that's all i'll say. i'll start by saying yes, i was disappointed in the film as i felt it needed to be on the level of #straightouttacompton as well as the #neweditionstory. now i will say from a visual perspective, #bennyboom did a great job w/ the visuals as well as #demetruisshippjr & #lthutton for getting it done in addition to being a black director/producer combo. honestly, i wasn't feeling the actual story line but there's a reason for that too. the difficulty in doing a movie about #tupacamarushakur is that in the telling the story of #tupac (#2pac) is that it is not linear like the story of most rappers (like #notoriousbig). the story of those of us who grew up when the music was first hitting the streets have knowledge of the duality of his character as reflected in the music. solely based on the different eras, if you grew up in the 6o's you're a civil rights baby, in the 7o's what you are is a #revolutionary baby. if you grew up in the 8o's you are a crack baby. there's a different level of understanding which comes from being children who grew up in the time of the birth of that culture. most of us in here are 7o's through 8o's. i was looking forward to seeing more of the duality of the complexity in the revolution which birthed '#pac. it seemed to focus more on the #kevinpowell interview, the assault case surrounding #hatianjack (the character 'nigel'), the quad studios shooting involving #kingtut, isaac, the 'henchmen' etcetera (continued in the comments 👇).
