myspace: the movie

This thing is hilarious. Tellin' ya - this filmmaking thing is blowing up.

Digital cameras are making it easier and easier for regular people to start making quality movies, and the success of films such as Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11' are driving indy flick development - especially in these repressive times.

Even folks in the hood are getting in on the act. While these 'street documentaries' are very troublesome on a bunch of levels, they may also help some white folks realize how awful the ghettos really are - and do one of two things - either:
1) convince white folks that black folks are animals, or
2) help white folks to understand the desperation and hopelessness and terrorism that black folks are faced with from their earliest days.

Let's hope it's the latter...
