Tupac: Resurrection
from Film Forum, 11/20/03

Tupac: Resurrection narrates the life and death of the popular rapper Tupac Shakur, who was at the peak of his musical career and the beginning of his acting career when he was shot dead in Las Vegas in September 1996.

Even though it landed in the box office top ten this week, this new film by Lauren Lazin was all but ignored this week by religious media outlet.

Marie Asner (The Phantom Tollbooth) did attend the film. She reports that it "earns the R rating for sexual content and language. The rap songs have plenty of raw language and are angry toward the police, society and sometimes women." But she adds, "There is no doubt that [Tupac] was one of the most talented rap artists of his time and had he lived, [he] would have album after album, plus film role after film role."

Mainstream critics delivered thoughtful and positive—if relatively unenthusiastic—reviews.
