Film Review GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimp’s and Ho’s Please Stand Up!

It’s a story that’s been told time and time again, that corporate America is filled with “pimps” and “gangsters” exploiting and systematically destroying the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Middle and Urban America. Well, conspiracy theorists, rejoice! This film might just prove what you wise sages have known all the time.

GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimp’s and Ho’s Please Stand Up! uses metaphysical premises and truth to tell the story of capitalism in a way that street savvy viewers will understand. GhettoPhysics examines the interplay between Pimps and Ho’s and how that dynamic works across all levels of power. And, it makes a lot of sense. Corporate executives, like Pimp’s, provide the vision and direction for Ho’s, who execute the work but see little of the profits.

The film uses elements of metaphysics, a broad philosophy that uses broad concepts to help define reality and our understanding of it, to further explain the inner workings of not just corporations but all elements of power. In metaphysics, there is a direct relation between mind and matter –a person can play a major part in creating their own reality. However, that concept is not the primary focus; it is the concept of microcosm and macrocosm, when what is done on a small scale is replicated on a large scale that is the primary focus of the film.

Confused yet? You should be and that’s a good thing. In the case of this film, pain is just weakness leaving the body. GhettoPhysics is a good film; it’s informative, amusing, and educational all at once. It features interviews by Cornel West and KRS-One, as well as former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and other authors and notable personalities; including real pimp’s. The film, in which, writer E. Raymond Brown, acts as a Professor during a dramatized classroom setting, is provocative and one that is great to watch with friends because it will definitely spark a conversation.
