Movie Info

Hip-hop mogul Damon Dash (Paper Soldiers) directs this semi-autobiographical film based on his life as the proprietor of Roc-a-Fella Records. Ebon Moss-Bachrach stars as David Katz, a reporter who, upon interviewing rap producer Damon (Capone), finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into the high-class world of hip-hop. Before he knows it, Katz ignites a war within the label that could bring down the operation for good. A bevy of celebrities from all walks of life make appearances, including Riddick Bowe, Lorraine Bracco, Mariah Carey, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Carson Daly, Jay-Z, Chloe Sevigny, James Toback, and countless others.

Critic Reviews for Death of a Dynasty

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (8)

  • Half home movie, half product placement, and almost completely worthless.

    Apr 29, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • This narcissistic mockumentary is less a film than a full-length promotional video for Roc-a-Fella Records mogul/director Damon Dash.

    Apr 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.

    Apr 29, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • Watching Damon Dash's playful movie is like entering a room where a large, too noisy party is going on and never fully adjusting to the dark or the din.

    Apr 28, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Death of a Dynasty is, like the music it parodies: aggressive, over-the-top, louder than life and in your face.

    Apr 28, 2005 | Full Review…
  • There is a funny movie to be made from the outrageous egos and excesses of rap music. Death of a Dynasty is not that movie.
