Hustle & Flow
The movie is about a pimp in Memphis. The guy wants to do something better with his life. So, one day, a crackhead sells him a piano keyboard. The keyboard is what opens him up to the world of music, and he begins to make up rap songs. Seeing him and the sound crew create music on the spot is one of coolest things to witness in the movie.
The movie gives us a complex view of a man torn between his old world and the new one he’s trying to enter. Because he’s a pimp, we see the darker side of his character as well. He treats the women that work for him like crap. He forces one of his ladies to have sex with a storeowner so he can get a new microphone, while he throws another woman out on the street with her baby. Terrence Howard kicks ass as the main character in this movie. (Look for Terrence to kick the living crap out of Ludacris just like he did in Crash.)
Hustle & Flow is a gritty, yet entertaining look at what performers go have to go through to get ahead in the music world.
I see nothing wrong with this picture…
