    The surface bromides of meritocracy are each artist’s main talking points, but the real fun comes in smaller moments, like watching Jay Z rehearse or Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons nervously pace around the stage, worried that not everything will go as planned.

    Though painfully brief, the vibrant footage of acts like Passion Pit, D'Angelo, Dirty Projectors and Gary Clark Jr. on stage indicates that Made in America could have been a magnificent concert film. Instead, it's a pompous, overly earnest documentary, striated with flashes of brilliance.
