In 2005, African American auteur John Singleton helped a young filmmaker named Craig Brewer to get his first feature film, Hustle & Flow, filmed and screened at Sundance. The film depicts a Memphis pimp whom with the aid of a schoolyard friend and other acquaintances puts together a last-ditch effort to become a new hip hop sensation. What started off as a festival favorite turned into critical sensation and eventually an Oscar contender for Brewer, star Terrence Howard and Oscar Winners Three 6 Mafia for their song. But does the film deserve the glory or should it be turning tricks out of a busted Cadillac? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris find out.
