Product Description



Title aside, we'll never see the likes of Tupac Shakur again. The late rap superstar was a complex, contradictory figure and, throughout the course of this riveting documentary, it's as if he's back in our world again. Produced by his mother, former Black Panther Afeni Shakur, Tupac Resurrection isn't so much "biased" as it's subjective. In the MTV film, accompanied by a book and soundtrack, director Lauren Lazin looks at Tupac's short, full life from beginning to end and doesn't avoid the dark times--the arrests, the shootings--but she does tend to emphasize the positive over the negative. More to the point, the narration comes from Tupac himself, smoothly edited from countless interviews, so we're constantly getting his take on events. He's more thoughtful and articulate than his detractors might expect (despite the profanity), but the contradictions remain, making this essential viewing for even the most casual of fans. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

While I am a very big fan of Tupac Shakur, I will present this review based on the movie itself and not "what an AWESOME rapper" I think he is or print my own half-baked theories on how he is really alive. I have noticed that pretty much every review has offered very little detail on the film. With the countless amount of DVD's and other product floating around, is there really a need for another movie based on the life of Tupac Shakur? Well, this movie does offer something that none of the others have before and that is narration by Shakur himself.
Courtesy of old audio interviews and soundbytes, Tupac tells the story of his life in a way that few others could. From his birth as the son of a Black Panther to his final days in Vegas, Pac goes into detail on it all. Though commentary on his fatal shooting is clearly actually that of his first shooting at a New York recording studio, there are still some very eerie moments here. He talks about his days on Death Row Records in the past tense even though he was there until the day he died, he predicts his own downfall many times, and speaks candidly on a number of subjects that will really surprise you. The inclusion of Shakur's music is another thing that helps seperate this from a lot of the other documentaries on his life. To be able to hear the man himself speak on some of his best and most controversial recordings while they play in the background makes a huge difference.
"Resurrection" really plays like a companion piece to one of Pac's albums. It provides all of the visuals to go with the stories that Pac tells in his complex rhymes. It isn't just a story about rap music though. We're not spending exhausting moments of time in the studio or on concert. This isn't about Tupac the rapper.

"Tupac Resurrection" is a documentary celebrating the life of Grammy-nominated rapper Tupac Shakur. Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, serves as executive producer on the film, so this is really a loving tribute to her son, made for his many fans. Because MTV produced "Tupac Resurrection", director Lauren Lazin was able to include material from MTV's archives, which would otherwise not be available. Lauren Lazin has done a good job of presenting a coherent portrait of Tupac Shakur's music, message, and personality, from his childhood in Harlem to his death in Las Vegas in 1996, at the age of 25. "Tupac Resurrection" isn't going to convert anyone who doesn't already like Tupac Shakur's music or share his political convictions. His detractors will find their justification in the film, and his fans will find theirs. Perhaps ironically, that is the film's strength. "Tupac Resurrection" uses a lot of interview audio, as well as the interviews, themselves, to present Tupac's life in his own words. He speaks for himself here. Afeni Shakur and director Lauren Lazin are to be commended for including the less admirable aspects of Tupac's personality, including coverage of his 1994 trial for sexual abuse which resulted in Shakur serving eleven months in prison. Tupac Shakur once said that his life is a story of "ambition, violence, redemption, and love". Love him or hate him, this is a very good documentary about a man who not only cultivated the image of constant conflict, but also the reality.
The DVD: This is a very good package of bonus features for Tupac Shakur fans. In "Interviews", you will find a never-before-seen interview from 1992, recorded by MTV while Shakur was recording "A Very Special Christmas, Vol.

This movie was flawless. There wasn't a single mistake nor error. I know that is a disappointment to maintstream Hollywood, but it's true! Yes there is finally a great movie about the most Controversial rap artist of our time. There is finally a movie that shows how wrong, biased, and down right evil the media was towards Pac during his life time. They tried to reduce him to nothing but a low-life, trouble making, hood star with tattoos. Just because they were threatened by the truth in his lyrics, and the realness of his actions. Let's keep it real, Tupac represented a whole mass of youths in urban ghettos all across the country, if mainstream media accepted Pac, then they would have to accpet all of us, gangstas and thugs included! and you know they are not having that! With that being said, it's not suprising to hear some of the negative reviews previously stated. Some people would love to keep Tupac Shakur in that negative depiction of a thug life screaming maniac with out hearing his side of the story. Well this movie dismisses all of that. We hear the story coming straigt out of his mouth. We heard why he did certain things, how he felt about it, and his opinions of his own actions. If you watched the movie you saw that he was caring, intellegent, beautiful, charismatic, charming, misunderstood and incredibly talented. Don't get me wrong.. He had his faults as well.. But he didn't have faults because he was Tupac, he had faults because he was HUMAN, not only that but he was only 25!
Let Pac rest in Peace! He was already his biggest critic. If you're going to tell a story about him then tell all sides. If your going to scream about him being a thug, then also scream about him being politically conscious.
