I'm a big fan of Adam Yauch of The Beastie Boys. I mostly like the sense of humor he's shown as a video director, and I give him tons of credit for his activism, particularly his work with Milarepa.

I'm glad to see him moving into film. I look forward to seeing Gunnin For That Number 1 Spot, his Hoop Dreams-like documentary. His production company, Oscilloscope, will also be distributing Flow, a documentary about how corporations like Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Nestle try to privatize the world's dwindling fresh water supply. The film debuted at a film festival that was co-sponsored by Nestle, which wasn't psyched when they found out. Fight The Power indeed.
