Determined to grow as both a human being and an artist, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg takes a spiritual pilgrimage to Jamaica as filmmaker Andy Capper captures his gradual metamorphosis into Snoop Lion over the course of one profoundly transformational month. For as long as Snoop can remember, he's been rapping, but upon turning 41, the hustler lifestyle begins to take its toll on the man who turned out such hits as "Murder Was the Case," and who has seen the lives of too many friends taken by violence. While visiting Trench Town, Snoop seeks the wisdom of the Nyabinghi community… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn't as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"Snoop is a fascinating figure who deserves better than this puff piece."
‑ Leor Galil, Chicago Reader
"The film is most convincing as a musical travelogue, drifting through clouds of weed smoke toward some form of Doggy-Lion enlightenment. If not taken too seriously, it's kind of a blast."
‑ T'Cha Dunlevy, Montreal Gazette
"The film strikes an impressive balance between serious concerns and several hilarious episodes - usually involving Snoop and his entourage enthusiastically partaking of Jamaica's bountiful crops of marijuana."
‑ Terry Staunton, Radio Times
"One can't help thinking that if you've tasted all the spoils it is much easier to give the sweet life up - while still riding around in a Rolls, of course."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"In its simplest moments ... "Reincarnated" presents an honesty that is its own reward. It shows us an old Dogg with no tricks."
‑ Mikael Wood, Los Angeles Times
"The rap artist's spiritual journey (he's now Snoop Lion) seems earned, rather than the publicity stunt others might have caught a whiff of originally."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Daily News
"All told - and this film knows exactly who its audience is - a reminder of what famously enriching company habitual stoners are."
‑ Malcolm Jack, The List
"There's a nagging sense of indulgence that leaves us wondering just how truthful this documentary actually is as it follows Snoop Dogg on a voyage of personal discovery."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"There could have been an interesting documentary here had the director stepped up to challenge his subject."
‑ Henry Barnes, Guardian
"Snoop's involvement as a producer does a disservice to the film. Was there anyone behind the scenes with veto power?"
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"The whole thing does feel like a self-indulgent exercise on the part of Snoop, though he remains an artist of undeniable substance. In this case, a controlled substance."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"Comic, pretentious and tedious."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"You suspect the camera crew returned from Jamaica with about 20 minutes of usable footage."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Lavish PR mission or genuine example of creative renewal? Beats us..."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
