Beats, Rhymes & Life - The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

"Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest” is a documentary film directed by Michael Rapaport about one of the most influential and groundbreaking musical groups in hip-hop history. Having released five gold and platinum selling albums within eight years, A Tribe Called Quest has been one of the most commercially successful and artistically significant musical groups in recent history, and regarded as iconic pioneers of hip hop. The band’s sudden break-up in 1998 shocked the industry and saddened the scores of fans, whose appetite for the group’s innovative musical stylings never seems to diminish.

In addition to chronicling the past, present and uncertain future of the band, the film includes interviews from the Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Pharrell, Mos Def, Santigold, Monie Love, Pete Rock, Large Professor, De La Soul, The Jungle Brothers and Common, all of whom attribute some combination of love, respect, and inspiration drawn from the legacy of A Tribe Called Quest."

After watching this movie trailer, i must say, this movie is one to watch in this 2011! Yep, "Catatan Harian Si Boy" is the brand new version of "Boy" from the 80s era. The Director, Putrama Tuta said that this movie is NOT a remake of the legendary earlier "Catatan Si Boy" Movie, but this is the brand new Boy. "This is about Boy of this generation", Tuta said. He also added, this movie is not about Boy, This movie will tell a story about Boy finding a young man, Satrio (play by Ario Bayu) to continue his legacy.

With loads of Indonesia's promising actors and actresses such as Ario Bayu, Carissa Puteri, Poppy Sovia, Albert Halim, etc. and also with the original "Catatan Si Boy" cast such as Didi Petet and Onky Alexander, this movie is a must watch.
