I might've gone blind, this was so horribly, awfully bad!
Oh, man. Anyone who ever went to film school has seen footage as bad as this. During the viewing of your classmates' first film class assignments. Mink (I love how he's too cool for school and doesn't want people to know his real name) truly has no clue where to put the camera, or what to tell his "actors", or what directing means.
One of my favorites is a dialogue scene outside someone's apartment or store, I think, and some lady keeps sweeping with a broom all over the place while two other people exchange painfully bad dialogue. Never mind that there's no dirt on the ground to sweep (1) or that her way of sweeping would've spread the dirt all over the place had there been any (2), or the fact that the blocking is so uninspired that most of the time you must wonder who's speaking, and more importantly, why (3). So you succumb to the horror, which is SO painful to watch, the only way to cope with the level of badness is to laugh uncontrollably at the horrific performances by (of course) rappers (as we all know, when you can string rhymes together, clearly you're more than qualified to act in motion pictures, too. No more training is required). My recommendation: (w)rap this piece of crap and put it where it belongs: in the garbage.
