American Pimp

type
  • Movie
genre

Menace II Society‘s Hughes brothers turn their lenses on those nigh-mythical urban opportunists who’ve long been a fascination of everyone from blaxploitation filmmakers to the producers of Seinfeld. Packing a smooth soundtrack and interviews with several kings of the profession — some are incarcerated thugs, others reformed family men — American Pimp is a vivid, energetic portrait of a subculture where image equals power, and ”bitch” is the sweetest term of endearment. How American. B+
