Hustle & Flow
class=img_thumbleft> Part uplifting comedy, part bleak drama, part blaxploitation tribute, Hustle & Flow is silly and profound, breezy and wrenching, and it sometimes switches gears like a 15-year-old learning how to drive a stick, which isn't to say that director Craig Brewer doesn't know what he's doing. I've seen the movie twice now and liked it even more the second time. Look for Rob Nelson's interview with Brewer and my review of the movie in our July 20 issue.
