Movie Info

Determined to grow as both a human being and an artist, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg takes a spiritual pilgrimage to Jamaica as filmmaker Andy Capper captures his gradual metamorphosis into Snoop Lion over the course of one profoundly transformational month. For as long as Snoop can remember, he's been rapping, but upon turning 41, the hustler lifestyle begins to take its toll on the man who turned out such hits as "Murder Was the Case," and who has seen the lives of too many friends taken by violence. While visiting Trench Town, Snoop seeks the wisdom of the Nyabinghi community elders in finding a new direction, and reflects on the past and future while immersing himself in Rastafarian culture. Later, in the wake of a deeply affecting meeting with the legendary Bunny Wailer, Snoop Dogg embraces his new identity as Snoop Lion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Anything beyond 'Jah' and 'peace and love' is lost in a fog of weed but classic moments such as a perma-stoned Snoop trying to scrump a grapefruit off a tree are unintentionally hilarious.

You suspect the camera crew returned from Jamaica with about 20 minutes of usable footage.

One can't help thinking that if you've tasted all the spoils it is much easier to give the sweet life up - while still riding around in a Rolls, of course.

There could have been an interesting documentary here had the director stepped up to challenge his subject.

Lavish PR mission or genuine example of creative renewal? Beats us...

It features more weed than a pot-warming party at Bill & Ben's but offers little more than spliff-glazed promotion for Snoop's reggae reincarnation.

A personal journey for Snoop Dogg as he becomes Snoop Lion. Perhaps I am being overly critical but while it may have been moving for Mr. Lion, the audience remains unmoved. Interesting to look at but unmemorable.

As not only a fan of Snoop Dogg(now Snoop Lion), but a fan of reggae music, Rastafarian culture, and the whole marijuana as a gateway to our spiritual selves; I really enjoyed this film. Obviously everybody has their own opinions on who Snoop Dogg really is, and some won't accept this as anything more than a marketing ploy. If you really think about it though, the only thing that making a reggae record would do to Snoop's career is bring it down a peg, not up. More people in this country love rap, then love reggae. In all honesty, I believe that the Snoop Dogg is sincere in his metamorphosis into a reggae artist that sings about peace, love, and struggle, instead of sex, violence, and the thug/drug-dealing/pimp life. Snoop Dogg ventures to Jamaica in an effort to become a new type of musician. He changes his name to Snoop Lion and immerses himself in Rastafarian culture, as well as recording his debut as a reggae artist. Along the way we see many locals, including Bunny Wailer and Damien Marley, and we listen to Snoop Dogg explain why he chose this new path. I can accept that some people will never accept this new and improved Snoop, but I'm one of those that can, and I look forward to listening to Snoop Lion for years to come. If you're into the whole Rastafarian thing and like Snoop Dogg, this is a can't miss. If you're just into Rastafarianism, it's worth a look. If you're into neither of them, then just pass on it because you won't enjoy it.
