Movie Info

Half-a-Mill is a 26 year old hip hop artist from the Albany Projects in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. By the time he was seven, Half was sharing a gun with his brother, 'cause he was sick of people putting their guns in his face in the elevator of his building, and not being able to do anything about it. Half's been running with the same ten guys, since he was real little, and they're his crew. But he's the one that will take all of them out of the projects because he's been signed by the indie music label, Warlock Records. Half and his crew are doing most of the work to launch his first album Milion, but that's ok because there's the chance they'll blow up, and Half wants that so bad he can taste it, and he'll do whatever he has to do, in order to support himself, his family and his music. -- (C) Official Site

April 3, 2012 | Full Review…

A rare insider glimpse at a lifestyle of deprivation that drums all ambition out of some youngsters, and pushes others to do whatever they need to do and can do to succeed.

April 11, 2012 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Hardcore investigation of ghetto life is undoubtedly powerful but proves perplexing, intent-wise.

April 6, 2012 | Full Review…

One of the more intimate and revealing looks at American projects ever made; it's assured and empathetic without indulging in fashionable white guilt.
