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.

No disrespect to Kevin Kerslake but this is a disneyesque docu wrapped in red tape.
7 March 2018 | by DesmondsdrumsSee all my reviews

Docu are raw gritty slice of life this is a whitewashed studio film. Where are the heart wrenching interviews with travis barker, nicole richie "ex fiancee" and haley wood "gf at the time"? I was excited about learning how a celebrity could resist temptation and exist in the superficial world of celebrities with out altered perception, turn out this isn't that type of movie. DJ AM of the host of the intervention rip off show on MTV and he died from drug overdose. I know DJ Am acted in Iron Man and that Marvel is a Disney subsidiarity but i expected more talk from friends and less talk from his sponsors. I could tear plot holes in this movie all night, 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, that site is officially corporate garbage. Keep your stories real or get off the field. This movie is like one long propaganda film for the 12 steps, which the message is wrong because the 12 steps fail this guy relapses and dies.
