There are no shallows in this unguided tour of hip-hop music and dance. It's all deep water, and in my ignorance I mostly sank. Still, I had a good time drowning thanks to the balls-out dancing. Writer-director-star Wendell Tucker seems to genuinely love hip-hop while questioning its influence on African-American life--family, community, religion, male-female relations. As a disillusioned host doing his last hip-hop TV show, he talks things over with his bratty cohost (Krysten Williams), a DJ (head choreographer Jeremy Noah), and hip-hop personified (Lisa Cooper). The conversation is mostly directed at cognoscenti, and the show is unpolished and too long, but I didn't care. --Laura Molzahn
