The Poor and Hungry is an excellent film, especially if you live in or are familiar with Memphis. The ending is a little silly, but otherwise the movie is both funny and heartwrenching. It's also a incredibly insightful look at the unique culture of Memphis, touching on the city's poverty, race issues and seediness while at the same time showing the filmmaker's genuine love for a town like no other. For Memphians, it's a must-see; for everyone else, it's still worth the price of a ticket.
