A Movie Scene I Still Love

Was just thinking about the movie "Hustle & Flow" today and how great it was, with one scene in particular standing out for me as a writer. The movie is one of those polarizing effects by which those who have never seen it make wildly inaccurate judgments on what they think it's about, and those who *have* watched it who've come to the realization that it's one seriously good flick!

Yes, the movie is about a Memphis pimp trying to break into the rap game. Yes, it has naughty language and scenes with female bits showing -- OH NOES! But at its heart this is a tale about overcoming the odds and reaching for a dream.

If you have not seen the movie, you should rent it. If you think you're not into this sort of thing, just watch it anyway. Open your mind for 2 hours and think of the real message behind all the cussing and such.

Or, alternately, just check out the clip below and get a glimpse of what it's like to wring creativity out of a few pages of scribbled lyrics:
