Get Rich Or Die Trying (2005)

A gangster’s parable as striking, bullet-riddled, and pain-underlined as the voice of its protagonist over high-glossed 4/4 beats, GRODT is a hyper-violent, shockingly-well-acted, epic-soundtrack journey into a nightmare we cannot imagine: that is purposely-hard-to-watch as it journalistically-captures the rise of 50 Cent. 6.2/10.
