同じヒューマンビートボックスでも、こういう文化の側面を垣間見ると、全く違う音に聞こえる・・・

とても興味深いテーマだった。欲を言うともう少し、彼の考えや信条などの話を聞きたかった。

While I enjoyed Matisyahu\'s story, i feel like it was told to me in a very conventional way. Considering the subject\'s spiritual connection, i\'d like to have seen how he lives spiritually outside of music performance, in his day to day. In short, not enough depth to make this a memorable portrait film.
