Draw Your Own Conclusions Based on the Facts
18 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

The DVD version of Before I Wake is definitely what all Pac fans have been waiting for. All of the photos take you back to a time when Pac was feeling good about the possibilities of life & what it had in store. The director commentary is also very insightful in letting viewers know that this is a documentary and that everyone must draw their own conclusions based on the facts known. After viewing & digesting all of the facts a couple of times, watch with the commentary on to see if all of your conclusions stay the same. This video is definitely recommended to anyone who has an inkling of an idea of who Tupac Shakur was & of his demise.
