Movie Details

Documentary filmmakers William Arntz and E. Raymond Brown draw parallels between Wall Street power players and ghetto pimps through interviews with such outspoken celebrities as Ice-T, KRS-One, Too Short, and Dr. Cornel West. Animations and satirical dramatizations portray how the same power techniques implemented by pimps to keep their employees under control are being emulated by the powers that be in order to keep the general public sedate, and real-life pimps offer compelling insight into the complex power dynamics that help to ensure that the person holding the most cash always comes out on top. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
