I saw Juice Wrld: Into the Abyss at AFI Festival and I knew next to nothing about Juice Wrld other than my three stepsons loved him and he had a lasting impact on these boys. So when I saw the film, I walked away impressed with not just Juice Wrld, the rapper, but Juice Wrld, the person.
From the cold opening of the film to the breakdown of how Juice became an overnight sensation, this documentary impressed me on so many different levels.
I was excited to pick the brain behind the director’s chair in Tommy Oliver. He was able to bring to life this artist in a way that we had never seen before. He and I explored Juice Wrld, what made him unique and what it was like working on this project.
