Critic Reviews for Iceberg Slim: Portrait Of A Pimp

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (5)

  • [Dierctor Jorge] Hinojosa does a good job of showing Iceberg's humanity without glossing over the viciousness of his chosen profession.

    August 15, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film succeeds as an introduction to Beck the writer but is undercut by its lack of gritty details.

    July 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is weighed down by the testimony of bespectacled professors from hip critical studies and English departments and a psychologist, who describe Mr. Beck's biography without the punch and lyricism of his prose.

    July 18, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Intentions and effect are at odds throughout Jorge Hinojosa's one-note documentary Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp ...

    July 16, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Beck's widow, his ex-wife and three daughters paint the man as someone whose success only complicated his life, estranging him from his family and eventually saddling him with crippling inertia.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • It's briskly pieced together from interviews and archival footage, including snippets of Slim that easily hint at his authoritative, brooding magnetism.
