I just saw the premiere screening of "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" at
the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was introduced by
director Michel Gondry as a work in progress.
The concept is simple: In the summer of 2004, Dave Chappelle, on the
heels of the success of his unfortunately now-ill-fated TV show,
decided to throw himself a big party. So he recruited his favorite
artists (Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Kanye West, Common, Erykah
Badu, Jill Scott, Cody Chesnutt, John Legend, The Roots, and a reunited
Fugees - not to mention guest shots by Big Daddy Kane and Kool Herc) to
play an old-school style block party in Brooklyn. The film chronicles
this party, intercutting riveting performance footage with backstage
antics and a documentary that chronicles Dave's efforts in organizing
the event, during which he not only tries to lure Brooklynites to the
top-secret show, but also, by issuing a series of Willy Wonka-style
golden tickets, a variety of people from all races and walks of life in
the rural Ohio town where he lives. It's a trip to watch the older
white folks from Ohio, who've never listened to a hip-hop record in
their lives, having a blast at a Block Party in the heart of Bed Stuy.
Long story short, the result is not only hands-down the best hip-hop
concert film ever made, but also a genuinely moving piece of
film-making that somehow nearly brought me to tears in parts.
Fundamentally, this is a heart-warming tribute to the power of hip-hop,
just as 'A Great Day In Harlem' was for jazz and 'Woodstock' and 'The
Last Waltz' were for rock n' roll. Though there was certainly some
roughness in the sound mix and image quality at this particular
screening, the vitality of the film was evident in spades. Not to sound
too corny, but this is a piece of work that celebrates the human spirit
- a bright light in the midst an arguably cynical cultural landscape.
The concert itself is amazing - a hip-hop show filled with the kind of
moments of spontaneity usually only seen in rock concerts. You can see
how the artists here are all friends, and they keep it loose and
ego-free, often jumping onstage with one another during the course of
the show, to marvellous effect. Some notable highlights: a
spine-tingling version of Kanye West's 'Jesus Walks', performed with a
full marching band that Dave invites from an Ohio college; the reunion
of Black Star for an almost trip-hoppy rendition of 'Definition' that I
desperately now want a recording of; Dead Prez's blistering version of
'Hip-Hop'; Erykah Badu ripping off her afro weave mid-set when the wind
becomes a bit too unforgiving; Mos Def's late-night improv version of
'Umi Says' (and when he joins Dave on drums for an impromptu comedy
set); Big Daddy Kane jumping onstage with The Roots and positively
electrifying the dumbfounded crowd; and, of course, the headlining act,
The Reunited Fugees - particularly Lauryn Hill's stirring vocals on
'Killing Me Softly'.
Anyway, enough praise. Long story short, at this screening the audience
exploded with thunderous applause as soon as the incomplete end credits
came up, and a few people were even stirred out of their seats for a
standing O - something I've never really seen at the screening of a
Check this out when it comes to DVD. It'll make you feel good.
