Produced by MTV, Lauren Lazin's documentary weaves recorded interviews with rapper Tupac Shakur into a first-person postmortem account of his life, including the music-business rivalry that may have motivated the drive-by shooter who killed him in Las Vegas in 1996. Making Shakur the narrator works pretty well at first, while the film explores his mother's ties to the Black Panther Party and the burgeoning of his creativity at the Baltimore School for the Arts. But once he becomes an overnight star at age 20, his relentless self-articulation to Tabitha Soren begins to sound like the usual celebrity white noise, his ideas about race and power in America potent but undeveloped. Lurking somewhere behind this is a fascinating story of racial anger curdling into ugly fame. 109 min.
