Movie Review by AJ
April 14th, 2006

If you think rap music is a braindead, soulless enterprise requiring little to no talent, I've a hunch this highly impressive second feature from writer-director Brewer will completely blow your mind. With the gritty, grungy vibes of an underground 70's flick, Hustle & Flow is an authentic-feeling tale of a pimp who attempts to escape poverty through his rap. It sounds like the most horrible clichéd plot one could think up, but Hustle & Flow accurately captures the southern style desperation of its antagonist, played by Terrence Howard in a frankly amazing breakthrough performance. Without Howard, the film would be a good enough, well-made movie; but with Howard, it's a searing record of the fight for success and the obstacles that lie in the way.
