Amazing story from beginning to end. A must watch by any starving artist.

Fascinating documentary on an equally fascinating phenomenon . This IS real!

An absolutely fascinating look at one of the most diverse, organic, and eclectic forms of theater in the world, and an equally fascinating perspective through the stories of the passionate visionaries who brought it to life. The documentary always keeps you interested and does not linger on any particular point for too long, nor does it brush over a detail leaving you wanting to learn more about it. By the time it concludes, you feel like you really have a sense for not only where Hoodslam came from, but where it's going. Fantastic film-making, hilarious interviews and stories, an entire cast worth of unique characters (all of whom are entirely different from each other), and the clips from the event it self make the viewer wanna seek out the Oakland Metro Opera House every first Friday of the month. This is real!

Absolute magic

An incredible story about a group of people who not only achieved when they shouldn't have, but achieved when they didn't even know they were trying. You may as well buy it now to minimize the wait, as you're just going to want to buy it later anyways.

I'd like to shake the hand of the creator

This film brought back my vision. Then I watched raw again. What happened?

The special hidden feature brought back my equestrian passions. The segment on Otis the gimp had similar effects.

This was a fascinating look at something that shouldn't have been. I'd like to shake the hand of the creator. I like shaking hands.

Best Wrestling Documentary of an independant company

I haven't even seen this yet but, am writing a review. Why? Because I've been to a Hoodslam show!!!!!!! The weed, the liquor, the beer, the wrestling, it's a life changing experience. You can't call yourself a Hoodslam fan without owning this. (Edited due to Amazon's request I take out obscenities)
