From its title, you can probably deduce that GhettoPhysics:  Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up! is a one-of-a-kind movie.  This is not surprising since one of the filmmaker’s claim to fame is another one-of-a-kind film – William H. Arntz’s What the BLEEP Do We Know!?, the cult film seen by more than 100 million viewers worldwide since its release in 2004.   GhettoPhysics is based on E. Raymond Brown’s 2002 book, “Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up!”  Brown, a musician, music producer, actor, author, and workshop facilitator brings all his social, anthropological and metaphysical knowledge and skills to bear in this, his first, motion picture.

A hybrid documentary, the story follows a student on her planned entry into a major university with the help of promised financial aid.  It turns out to be a rocky path, as forces beyond her control seek to determine her fate.   Over the course of her story, she (and we, the audience) learn how the Pimps and Ho’s game (dominators and dominated) is played out at every level of society:  from the streets, to the corporate boardroom, to the classroom.

Interviews with Dr. Cornel West, MC and producer KRS-1, economist John Perkins, television producer Norman Lear, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Ghanaian activist  Brother Ishmael Tetteh and some colorful street characters unveil the workings of the world’s eternal power game.  Great contemporary music and animation add potent spice to the film whose message, you gotta stand up and choose what role you’re going to play in every life situation, is enormously empowering.

The interviews are all enlightening – the entire film is compelling entertainment.  A perfect revelation and motivation at a time when millions are shouting, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”  Here’s why you are … and what you can do about it!
