American Pimp

2000 R

Filmmakers Albert and Allen Hughes' riveting but sometimes disquieting documentary probes the exploitative world of urban pimp culture. Interlacing interviews, surveillance footage and clips from 1970s blaxploitation films, American Pimp sketches the careers of these charismatic flesh peddlers -- with colorful monikers such as C-Note and Bishop Don Magic Juan -- who spin self-ennobling tales of life in the trade.
