If you've not seen Talk To Me, watch. this. movie. It's the story of Petey Greene*, one of America's first shock-jocks. Now lest you go thinking he shocked for the sake of it—he didn't. He spoke to and for the underclass of Washington, D.C.
The movie is profane, funny, serious, and poignant. Don Cheadle is sexy as hell as Greene. And Chiwetel Ejiofor, one of the most underrated actors I've ever seen, absolutely rocks as Dewey Hughes (sexy, too). The director, Kasi Lemmons, is on my Directors I Must Work With Before I Die list. (Yes, I really do have one.)
