Critic Reviews for Slam
Part gritty prison drama, part inner-city chronicle, the energetic Slam defies easy categorization, serving as a compelling plea for black males of how to survive in oppressive society. The film won the 1998 Sundance Jury Award for Best Drama.
A powder keg of a movie, exploding with emotional honesty and truth and the exuberant passion of raw young talent.
Audience Reviews for Slam
A brilliant masterpiece of independent black cimema. This was a film that had a strong cast(real-life poet Saul Williams and also Sonja Sohn of HBO's The Wire) with compelling subject matter complete with a killer soundtrack(featuring the sounds of the DC "go-go" and other artists)not to mention some of the most capitvating over-the-top rap poetry ever witnessed. All set within the most corrupt city in America--our nation's capital.
