    Poetry Slammed on Another Level

    I'm a young writer myself, I can very much relate to the energy that Saul Delivered in the film.I first seen the film when a friend brought the video over,and from that very day the word slam became so inspirational, that I came up with a special routine. I also gained further insights on scriptwriting true to life tales for video projects at school.I really do appreciate the work and efforts that was put into that work of art,(Slam) because I was touched in very positive way as far film and video is seen in all aspects of underground films. I strongly feel that 5 stars is deserved, but a nomination for an oscar would be even better. Peace ILLUM*1

    Fantastic! Fabulous! Excellent!

    SLAM. The name suits the movie. SLAM has really moved me. It is positively one of the greatest movies ever filmed. Absolutely amazing. It is unusual, touching, intelegent, pereceptive, and at some times breathtaking. Saul Williams is a profound actor, who should be commended beyond the history of reward can bare. The words in this film, the rap, the poetry, the diaglogue: they sleep together to form such a kind, loving baby of deep thought. You will find yourself in tears, and awe after viewing SLAM. Your hands will cover your face and you will be saying, ''How...how...why...but....'' you will sputter, crying, thirsty for more! I was. Get SLAM, you will love it, irregardless.

    Saul Wms. Slams Into a Major Hit Movie!!!

    This story of a sensitive street poet unjustly charged in a murder rap brings tears to my eyes each time I see it. Not only is this the first movie NOT to glamorize prison life but, it's also the first to use poetry in such a realistic yet moving way. When Joshua entered the prison, I could actually feel his fear and his revulsion when being strip searched. I cried when Joshua did his best not to fight when having another inmate take his food at dinner; only to be beaten anyway. To me, the most moving scene was out on the yard, when the 2 rival gangs decided that it was time for Joshua to choose. It was then that Saul Williams delivered the most moving, thought provoking and challenging poems ever imaginable. Bringing both sides to wordless awe and bewilderment, and everyone knowing that this was a soul that could not be chained into any gang or prison system. This movie is definitely a MUST SEE.
