Bring Da Ruckus

Rock the Bells is a documentary that's kinda like Gimme Shelter meets Dave Chappelle's Block Party, except it's much more fuming with momentum and DIY energy. The film follows concert promoter, Chang, as he frantically tries to organize the last show the notorious Wu-Tang Clan will ever play together (Old Dirty Bastard died four months after the concert). To assemble the nine hip-hop legends takes multiple phone calls, drugs, coaxing, and money, money, money, but Chang somehow pulls it off, making for a very compelling climax in which over 10,000 hyperactive fans attempt to storm the stage. I would not pass on this film.
