    People frequently cover the camera lens with their hands or refer to the "documentary" being filmed, as if to assure us that what we're seeing is real.

    Lacks sufficient appeal beyond niche aficionados of its featured performers.

    Backstage isn't as good as the rap documentaries "Rhyme and Reason" and "The Show," but it still casts a keen, observant eye...on this world.

    If you're already a huge fan of any of these artists, this film will be a lovefest. For all others, it's a mild diversion at best.

    Mildly satisfying.

    High-concept cinema this ain't.

    Mostly, these guys carry on like spoiled children, complaining, roughhousing and badgering women to strip naked.
