Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp

 

 

Nearly every single gangster MC and every blaxploitation film committed to celluloid owes an overwhelming debt to Iceberg Slim, the notorious ex-pimp and author of groundbreaking, hard-hitting ‘70s novels such as Pimp and Trick Baby — but few people have had knowledge of what this shadowy literary icon was really like away from the pages of his pulpy paperbacks until now. Awash with fast-paced commentary from authors, scholars, friends, family and heavyweights like Ice-T and Snoop Dogg, this brand-new doc provides a riveting tapestry reconciling Slim’s towering persona with the fragile realities of his undiscovered private life. Starting with a whirlwind tour down the path of Slim’s knife-edge origins as he developed his “managerial skills” on the streets of Chicago, and moving to an intimate portrayal of his later life in Los Angeles as a struggling father of four, living in poverty while his game-changing books sold millions of copies around the world, Portrait Of A Pimp deftly pries open the lid on the many fantastical myths surrounding the baddest dude on the planet. Director Jorge Hinojosa in person for Thursday night’s opening show!
Dir. Jorge Hinojosa, 2012, digital presentation, 89 min.
