Netflix should make a documentary on his father
2 November 2016 | by silus-24869See all my reviews

I thought this movie was pretty decent, but the most intriguing parts were all about his father, Hiroaki "Rocky" Aoki. Someone needs to get a documentary going about that man. One of the most interesting men i've never heard about. He seems to have led a very crazy, adventurous life. Part of this documentary seems to be about Steve Aoki chasing the demons of his fathers high expectations.

FYI, i don't know much about this music genre or the whole scene, so it might be more appealing for others. I just wanted to watch it to understand why tens of thousands of people are drawn to these venues. Still a bit confused by it all, though.
