Darker Side of Black


This British documentary observes the socio-cultural, and political influences of rap and raggea (a combination between reggae and rap) music upon black pop culture and vice versa. The film has a special focus upon the increasing tendency for the songs to express anti-gay sentiments. Included are interviews, and clips from music videos. The filmmaker, Isaac Julien stays relatively objective as he presents his overview. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
