Pimp Snooky by Bruce Hollis

The movie Pimp Snooky, written with the Pimp Pen Polish of Superfly, The Mack, and Willie Dynamite, definitely transports the viewers along an unrighteous railway, aboard the train of temptation. It is a look into the Jekyll and Hyde metamorphosis of a mannish-boy, overdosed on the thuggish, ghetto power of man-whoring. Pimp Snooky(Derek Avery), reigns over his street sirens with the constant threat of violence, the worst of which, is seen in his piercing soulless eyes.

This movie is also a Girls in The Hood field trip to grandmothers house,with Pimp Snooky as the big bad wolf, who devours their womanhood along the journey. The movie Pimp Snooky, is painful to watch and even more disturbing are the horrors that we imagine, as nervous compassion builds inside of us. This movie reminds us of just how cruel the streets of colored town in any city can be, and of the icy, demonic Imps who set he temperature there.

This is not a cliché, clownish characterization of the Pimps of 70's movies and television shows. Pimp Snooky is a darkly dramatized film. The supporting characters Tina Dawkins, Shamika Evans, Takela Rogers, Tisa Salinas, all give first rate performances. Their portrayals of these doomed damsel's are executed with a sort of hopeless humanness. And although we know that lives like these can't possibly have a happy ending, these fine actresses proudly pose them under a spotlight of pride.

Yet, it is Derek Avery's performance as Pimp Snooky that is ground breaking and ungodly euphoric! We hate the character of Pimp Snooky which Avery portrays, yet we are astonished by his striking screen persona.

Idris Elba(The Wire, Daddy's Little Girls) is set to portray Pimp Snooky in Writer, Producer, Malik Jubal's 2011 release "Let Me Pimp or Let Me Die." And with an impressive supporting cast of Oprah Winfrey as Snooky's mother Pearl Marjhani, Tisha Cambell(Martin, My Wife and Kids), Janet Jackson(Poetic Justice, Why Did I Get Married), the movie threatens to be a formidable offering. by Bruce Hollis
