A fantastic documentary, regardless of your opinions on Kanye
As usual, people get so biased by their personal views of the subject that they can't perceive the merits of the presentation in its own right. Ignore the naysayers, this is an acutely edited and thoughtful documentary. 'Coodie' did a fantastic job of capturing enough candid footage to weave together a fascinating insight into the clearly troubled trajectory of an equally troubled mind. Should a person's whole life be judged on it's later stages? Of course not, the earlier Kanye, his expressions, drives and influences are as interesting as anyone elses, it's a compelling human story. The documentary itself is great at balancing the narrative, hinting at things to come, showing everyday moments that feel loaded with various nuances of significance to the overall story. People don't choose their brains or contexts, a highly judgemental attitude seems to have blinded many from appreciating the craft going on here, both with Kanye's talent and Coodie's clear skill as an excellent documentarian. I'm not into hiphop whatsoever, have never even listened to a Kanye album and couldn't quote a single lyric. But I found this essential, compelling viewing.
