Quality content! Netflix added another documentary to their roster this past weekend and viewers are loving it. LA Originals on Netflix not only has an audience score that is through the roof, but it’s trending on the streaming platform.

The documentary premiered on April 10 with it’s official Netflix synopsis reading, “Photographer Estevan Oriol and artist Mister Cartoon turned their Chicano roots into gritty art, impacting street culture, hip hop and beyond.”

Both Oriol and Cartoon turned their careers into something more when they began creating album covers, working on music videos for mainstream artists, and running their tattoo parlour in Skid Row. However, according to The New York Times, the pair also captured the negligence that they experienced in Los Angeles while building their careers.

The film features some well-known celebs and their experiences visiting Cartoon’s tattoo parlour. The New York Times reports that A-listers like Mark Hoppus from Blink-182, Kobe Bryant, and Snoop Dogg all share their testimonies on the two artists.

While critics have yet to pencil in their rating of the documentary, LA Originals has been deemed almost perfect by viewers. The film has a 98% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Subscribers are also showing their love for Netflix’s new addition. As of April 13, the documentary has managed to make the top ten trending list, sitting in seventh alongside movies like Ocean’s 8, Love Wedding Repeat, and The Healer.
