One of the most controversial artists in a musical genre known for shaking things up, rapper Eminem has managed to attract fans and anger casual observers in nearly equal measure ever since his 1999 album The Slim Shady LP became a breakthrough hit thanks to his smart, angry, and provocative rhymes. Eminem: AKA is a documentary that attempts to cast light on the real Marshall Mathers who stands behind the Eminem persona; the film includes interviews with radio DJs who know him, music industry personnel who've worked with him, and several members of his family, including his mother, Debbie Mathers, his grandmother Betty Kresin, and his uncle Todd Nelson, the latter of whom died shortly after giving his interview for the film.
