AMERICAN PIMP (1999 U.S.) D/P: ALBERT AND ALLEN HUGHES P: KEVIN J. MESSICK
After MENACE II SOCIETY and DEAD PRESIDENTS, the Hughes Brothers made this documentary about pimping in America. Lots of real-life pimps and prostitutes are interviewed and some revelations are pretty interesting, but it doesn't really dig very deep. Good, but i couldn't help thinking it could have been so much better. Topics covered include pimp style, the history of pimping, the media image of pimps and "legal pimps". Some of the movie clips are from THE MACK and WILLIE DYNAMITE. Worth it for footage from the real Pimp of the Year convention.
