Get Yourself a Fatlip!
14 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film, which documents the plight of a has-been rapper, owes its effectiveness to the utterly charismatic personality of Fatlip. From the first scene, his captivating performance and charm carry the audience, and Jonze is careful not to get in the way of allowing Fatlip's personality to speak for itself. Through the performer's lyrics and on-screen conversations, Jonze provides a revealing look at the rapper's insight into the entertainment industry, his personal life and what he's lost in the process. A profoundly touching and honest look at an endearing performer, "What's Up, Fatlip" is a soulful documentary worth owning.
