More Sundance Raves: Lil Wayne

In my earlier Sundance coverage, I only cited the music docs that were in the main competition. But I didn’t mention one entry in the Park City to Midnight program and that’s the one getting the most attention. Adam Bhala Lough, who previously directed a doc called The Upsetter: The Life and Music of Lee Scratch Perry debuted Lil Wayne’s biographical documentary The Carter. Some early reports said it was best thing to happen at Sundance. Suffice it to say, it wouldn’t be the lead movie in any “War on Drugs” film festival. I’ll post again after I see the full cut.
