PLAYER HATING: A LOVE STORY takes the audience into an underground world of poverty, gangs, violence and music that is rarely seen in this manner—unless you live it. Told through the eyes of Half-a-Mill, a 26 year-old hip hop artist from the Albany Housing Projects in Crown Heights, Player Hating: A LOVE STORY follows Half, and his crew as they write, perform and launch Half’s first album, Milion in a desperate bid to escape nihilism, poverty and death. True to the origins of hip-hop as an art form, Half’s lyrics are a searing chronicle of life in the ‘hood’. Through the eyes of an urban poet and philosopher, PLAYER HATING: A LOVE STORY reveals the tragedy of living in a community abandoned by government, but maintained through humor, dignity, and the sheer will to survive.

April 6th, 2012

It's a pretty big week for limited releases, although due to the holidays, we don't have hard theater counts for most of them. There are a large number of films that are earning some real measure of buzz and / or very positive reviews. Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope might have had the best hope at finding an audience, but it is coming out on Video on Demand as well as in theaters. Likewise, The Hunter has an impressive cast and good reviews, but opened Video on Demand previously, and that tends to kill a film's box office chances. Damsels in Distress could be the big hit as well as it does have a few actors, and a director, that have Indie cred. More...
