Better than Sicko!
21 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I'm a student at UCLA and was lucky enough to attend the premiere of Pras' documentary, Skid Row. First of all, kudos to Pras for having the courage to go undercover and actually live on the streets with no food or shelter, and tape everything for the whole world to see. This film is extremely revealing. It introduces the homeless as people, it puts a face to the epidemic of homelessness- revealing who they are and how they ended up on the streets. I will never look at a homeless person the same way. Skid Row is not the usual boring voice-over/ talking head doc that many are acquainted with. In Skid Row, you see Pras as a vulnerable man, not as the untouchable hip-hop star of the Fugees that we are familiar with. This is honestly the best documentary I've ever seen. Skid Row definitely deserves an Oscar!
