Storyline

AS I AM: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DJ AM covers the late, great mash-up pioneer's entire life from seed to sorrow: his meteoric rise to become the first million dollar DJ in the United States, and his incredibly storied personal life, as well, which includes a long-running struggle with addiction, titanic efforts to help others in recovery, tabloid romances with assorted models and actresses, endorsement deals with Nike, Pepsi, T-Mobile and Activision, and surviving, along with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, a fiery plane crash a little less than a year before his controversial and untimely death in 2009.

Excellent Documentary. One of the best I have ever seen!
10 April 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This doc. Is a definite 10/10. Hands down, no question about it. If you like music, especially if you like hip hop, this documentary will strike a chord with you. If you have ever struggled with any form of addiction, this will strike a chord with you. If you have ever felt vulnerable to your public image, this will strike a chord with you.

This documentary takes you through the journey of Adam Goldstein aka DJ AM. One of, if not THE greatest DJ to ever spin. It shows the rough road from a kid all the way to his death. It shows the true overwhelming power of addiction. It shows more about the human condition than I could ever explain in a few sentences in this review. My number one suggestion is watch this movie! It is an amazing, AMAZING piece of film making. Probably the best documentary I have seen in a very long time.

WATCH ITTTT!
