A resounding thumbs up.
29 July 2001 | by (Jackson, TN) – See all my reviews

The Poor and Hungry was Craig Brewer's first released feature film. It is not merely a great directorial debut - it is simply a great film on any standard. Rarely has any filmmaker been more able to capture Memphis in its mythic entirety. Before The Poor and Hungry, audiences looked to Jim Jarmusch's Mystery Train as the definitive Memphis flick. But as much as I love that movie, I believe that Jarmusch (a transplant from Akron, Ohio, I might add) has been upstaged by Brewer's more masterful approach to the Memphis scene in which characters have more to talk about than Elvis and Sun Studios, yet hold onto that edge of Memphis funk. Watch out for Craig Brewer - I have a feeling we'll all be hearing more about him in the years to come.
