Critic Reviews for American Pimp
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.
The Hughes Brothers stylized and provocative expose' about street hustling flesh merchants...comical, disturbing and revealing.
Audience Reviews for American Pimp
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.
