All Eyez On Me
Director: Benny Boom
Running Time: 135′
The definitive account of the rise and fall of legendary hip hop superstar Tupac Shakur, All Eyez On Me follows in the footsteps of 2015’s Straight Outta Compton in setting the record straight on the superstars of rap. Detailing Shakur’s meteoric rise, his political education (his mother had been a member of the Black Panthers) and his time in prison, Benny Boom’s biopic features an incredible lead performance from 2Pac’s spitting image Demetrius Shipp Jr. Also delving into the rapper’s relationships with the likes of Notorious B.I.G., Suge Knight and Faith Evans, All Eyez On Me provides engrossing drama and insight into Tupac’s life and work, far beyond the boundaries of the standard biopic.
