If you don't see this movie you're a damn fool

Dave Chappelle's Block Party might be the best concert movie you'll see this year. Except for maybe this and of course this.

In its own way, "Block Party" (not Bloc Party!) reinvents the concert film for generations of films to come. Even from the very first shot, you know its going to be unorthodox. The fact alone that Michel Gondry's signature visual style even permiates through to the parts of "Block Party" that are a simple, one-camera "man on the street" flick is enough to sell certain white people on this movie. The fact that conscious hip-hop's eliterati perform in this movie is enough to sell certain black people on it. The fact that its the first major Chappelle project since his aborted third season of "Chappelle's Show" is enough to bring everyone else out. Be one of the "certain" people. Go see this fucking movie. I spent $6 bucks and it was totally worth it.

I'm serious-- go now. What are you waiting for?
