Jeff Tweedy, lead singer with Wilco, seems particularly inspir find out more...

Great doco about the early days of NY hip hop and life on the projects. One of the best features of this film is that it examines the political trajectory of Nas' career through his lyrics as well as the environment and familial situation that gave rise to his stardom.

This 1972 documentary film battles through the ever-present haze of pretentiousness that surrounds the band to give a creative portrayal of what the Floyd are 'about' in their live shows. The music is extended (the magnificent 'Echoes' in particular acts as a behemoth bookend to the show), the setting impressive and the boys are at the top of their game (this is the year before Dark find out more...
