Man has released a DVD on the underworld of strip clubs, titled The Strip
Game, under Lions Gate Entertainment.
The documentary features a candid account with the culture and
the girls who work within the industry.
“The reason I wanted to do this was to enlighten people
more,” Method Man told AllHipHop.com. “I never looked at the girls
in any kind of light.”
Rather than watching 72 minutes of nudity one would expect by
the name and subject matter, Method Man said he wanted to show the stories of
the girls, the people close to them and what drove their career choices.
“There are some girls that are really money hungry and
don’t even work in the strip clubs,” Meth said. “And there
are some girls that genuinely have a plan; this is their plan B because their
Plan A didn’t work out, and their Plan C is to take that money and go
to school with it.”
The story line digs deep into the hustling side of the profession
and tells a story rarely heard.
While there is a story well beyond the surface, the novice filmmaker
does admit to slipping in the occasional action scenes for viewers.
“Yeah I’m telling real stories, but if you pick
up a documentary on strippers, you’re going to want to see some stripping,
so we definitely got that in there,” he said. “But the girls with
the most personality, the ones who had a brain in their heads, we followed them
in their everyday life and that’s how the documentary kind of wrote itself.”
The Strip Game
is in stores now.
