Storyline

From the mind of Brooklyn actor, performance artist and Hip-Hop activist Danny Hoch, this film spins out the stories of ten lives shocked by global Hip-Hop, the prison system and life in general. Moving masterfully in and out of the characters while the camera cuts from film narrative to live performances, Danny blows your mind and makes you look at cultural power in a new way that is hysterically funny, tragically sad and uplifting all at once.

Great Movie
3 February 2002 | by Chad-11See all my reviews

Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop is fantastic, and under-rated. Self-distributed the film didn't get the limited regional release it deserves, instead was thrown up on a porly venued screen on the top floor of the East Village 7. This is a great movie, well made, and very funny. It has a lot to say about the impact of hip hop on all sorts of culture and does it extremly well. Danny Hoch is a genus, can't wait to see his next move in movie career.
