"The Defiant Ones" examines the partnership between Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre - one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton - and their leading roles in a chain of transformative events in contemporary culture.
The documentary has no structure to it, it's just footage from his shows from the past year. I would've wished it had some depth, but the film is very flat. If you don't know a lot about Travis, you'll be very confused watching it. It feels like they assumed you already know everything about him.
You basically get thrown back and forth between shows and events, like Super Bowl and the birth of his daughter, and at the same time showing clips of him as a kid (drawing parallel lines from his present, to his past.)
It's not a good documentary, but it's a full of cool visuals and footage. See for yourself!
