For Parents

Not to be missed both by fans of either the old or new school approaches presented in the film, as well as those out there who've had little exposure to neither. The hotel room scene where Madlib puts a beat together right there in front of the camera alone justifies the price of admission (same goes for Mamao's initial Madlib listening experience). The actual concert footage included is actually the least interesting part of the film, especially the extended clip at the end. Overall B+ succeeds in illustrating the fact that while the influence of these bossa nova/samba legends has enjoyed a new vitality on the turntables, their continued relevance has been sustained not by the advent of new recording instruments and tools, but by the uninhibited creative spark present in their original work. Different artists in different eras have arrived at comparable or compatible ends by disparate means. This isn't the delineation of a family tree so much as a home video of a family reunion.

This documentary is a piece of art, simply for the content it contains and the story it tells. Fortunately, it's also edited and directed well, so it stands out just that much more. Don't sleep!
