A disappointing docu debut drom the gifted Hughes brothers, a soft, uncritical exploration of pimps that ignores issues of race, misogyny and violence; helmers seem carried away by the "exotic" lifestyle of this morally dubious profession.
There's a built-in staleness to American Pimp that the Hughes Brothers are never able to overcome.
Wild, real and raw.
Celebrates an evil.
The Hughes Brothers stylized and provocative expose' about street hustling flesh merchants...comical, disturbing and revealing.
A surprising -- and surprisingly non-salacious -- non-fiction treat. It's a credit to the Hughes brothers that viewers leave with a much grayer picture of what an American pimp is all about.
By the time the movie ends we're left wondering if perhaps we weren't just celebrating these predators.
The film could never get to the core of what makes the pimp think in such a perverted way.
This is a really funny and informative sort of documentary.
'American Pimp' is fascinating from start to finish. The Hughes brothers documentary is relatively non-judgmental, and lets the flamboyant and ultra-verbal pimps do the talking. And boy, can they talk! This lack of moralizing troubles some viewers but I found it refreshing not to be manipulated and told what to think about a subject for once. Audiences will be divided in their reactions and opinions to these guys and I like it that way. Recommended viewing for anyone with an open mind and a sense of the absurd.
