Drama, Musical
This cross between a movie musical, a hip-hop music video and a 1930s gangster flick is certainly more wild and less idle. Music-video producer/director Bryan Barber reunites with OutKast as they make their cinematic debuts. Big Boi co-stars as a law-breaking rapper headlining at a thriving juke joint during Georgia’s Prohibition era. After his boss and gangster friend is gunned down by a soft-tongued money-grubber (Terrence Howard), the music maker takes control of the seedy pleasure trove he calls Church. Meanwhile, a shy and dapper piano player and mortician-in-training (OutKast’s André 3000 Benjamin) woos the sexy songstress. To further spice up this elongated music video, Barber constantly uses highly stylized special effects. From animation to bullet-time to quick cuts, this is truly a unique moviegoing experience.
