Editorial Reviews

The first 22 episodes of R and B singer R. Kelly's 'Hip-Hopera'. Discovering a new direction for the music video, the singer has taken the soap-opera format and applied it to the narrative in his songs, with characters mouthing the lyrics. Due in no small part to the 'bling culture' associated with this style of music, the resulting 'plot' involves lots of infidelities, guns, and gorgeous women, wrapped up in a daytime TV feel. Opinion is divided on whether it's meant to be as funny as it is.

Not since the days of Jean-Luc Godard has history seen such a brilliant filmmaker as Robert Sylvester Kelly. When taken at face value one might mistake this movie for a cheap poorly written narrative about the life of mindless thug. In reality Kelly has created one of the world's greatest satires. The character Bridget and her affair with a little person named "Big Man" is clearly a metaphor for the Bush Administration's mishandling of the Iraq war, and mismanagement of government funding. There are so many hidden icons, and underlying themes that one must watch this movie several times before appreciating its cinematic value. I am very satisfied with Kelly's work and look forward to the sequel which is rumored to be directed by James Cameron.

I was making some salad in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and I heard what sounded like R. Kelly singing. It was coming from the TV. I figured my fiancee just had BET on again--he loves hip hop. I walked over to the TV and saw the retro lettering appear on the screen: Trapped in the Closet. "This is a real thing? Like it's not just a song?" I exclaimed. I considered changing the channel, but for some reason, I could not turn away (probably because it was IFC, not BET, and almost everything on that channel is amazing).

It starts out with a very simple storyline, but after the first 30 minutes or so, you find yourself having to pay attention. Thankfully, R. Kelly inserts little summaries into the saga to catch you up. Things just get more and more complex as the story unfolds, and I'm astounded by the sheer creativity that lies behind this Hip Hopera.

My favorite line in the first 20 minutes or so is,"Oh! Here we go again!" Exactly the kind of self-refection I would expect from a creative genius. I know that R. Kelly peed on someone, but after seeing this, I really don't care.

Anyway, back to Thanksgiving: Within about 3 minutes of staring at the ridiculous hijinks occuring on screen, we were hooked. We could not leave the TV until the entire series was over. Now, I'm getting these episodes for my father-in-law (and one extra set for us). I think of it as an "I'm sorry for missing the first 3 hours of Thanksgiving, and Happy Christmas, too!" present

There's hardly anything like this bit of musico-soap-opera-hip'hop'drama history. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder. In a woman that's not so good, but in a traditional format, it's refreshing. But sometimes too much is just too much. Still a worthy and brilliant effort in stretching the boundaries of belief, convention, and patience!
