The Defiant Ones is witty, polished, grand in scale, ambition and budget, while remaining totally engrossing. The other music docs may as well give up now.
It's an incredible story, filled with larger-than-life characters, tragedy and folly, glory and ignominy.
While it might have made more sense to profile Iovine and Dre's lives separately, the basic device of telling them concurrently works, and Episode One holds your attention throughout.
The Defiant Ones works on almost every level: as a primer on the music industry, as gossip, as biography, as a time capsule of the 1980s, the 1990s, and the beginning of the 21st century.
Men have flaws, and for these two icons, the ultimate act of defiance might be showing them.
