Step Off (2011) Movie

Like Hustle & Flow (2005), Step Off (2011) follows a struggling black male musician with a supporting cast on a road of overcoming obstacles to create and share music filled with his passion and story.

Alive (2002)

Okay, this is another jacked up Japanese movie, similar to Audition and Grotesque.

In the beginning, a very intelligent man named David kidnaps a woman, Francesca, with the goal of forcing her to fall in love with him using psychological techniques and personal knowledge about her. It’s very slow for most of the movie,…
