Rolling Stone said of Wu-Tang: An American Saga: A decade in the making and caps off a year of self-mythologizing for the iconic group that’s included a Showtime documentary and a 25th anniversary tour. Co-created by RZA and Alex Tse and based on 2009’s The Tao of Wu — an autobiographical, philosophy book centered on RZA’s formation of the Wu — it arrives at a time when music biopics and Wu-Tang nostalgia are both at their peak. Initially envisioned as a four-part series, the project quickly ballooned into a Sisyphean effort to condense and dramatize years of complex relationships into a cohesive, season-long narrative. At the beginning of American Saga, the members of the Wu are enemies navigating the crack epidemic and the small, competitive drug-dealing territory of Staten Island. Between the shootouts and feuds, there are small moments featuring the members’ childhood abuse, bouts with homelessness, and the death of close friends. For a group that built their personas on kung-fu movie villains and comic-book superheroes, it’s a heartrending portrait of the men without their masks.
