Because I Love You

IT'S BACK! The film that everyone has a strong opinion about, Because I Love You, written and directed by Joseph Elmore (which we've covered before here on S & A - most recently HERE) has a new extended trailer.

If you recall, the film deals with "Cream, a beautiful young exotic dancer torn between good and evil, internally as well as externally. On the night that she chooses a life of good over evil, the Gentlemen's Club where she dances gets robbed and she is taken hostage by a group of wild animals. She is driven to an undisclosed location and brutalized repeatedly. Feeling like all hope is gone, it is the love of her daughter, who is waiting for her to come home that keeps her alive."

Furtheromore the filmmakers are proud of their film because, in their words it's a "must see film that mixes action, crime and comedy up in a pot and feeds our movie going need for good old fashion, no holds barred entertainment. Most importantly it’s a love story in the greatest sense of the phrase. It is about unconditional love, between a man and a woman, friends, family and especially the love of a mother and her child."

Here's the new trailer; can't wait to see what you all are going to say about it now:

    A must miss film that mixes action, crime and comedy up in a pot and feeds our movie going need for good old fashioned black female stereotypes and no holds barred torture porn. Most importantly it’s a love story in the greatest sense of the phrase. It is about unconditional love, between a stripper and her kidnapper.

    There, fixed it.

    This must be a comedy of some sorts, right?

    This trailer is worst than the last! SMDH.

    Between this, that blaxploitation video, and that two gay guys in a car thing...just why?

    Now my question isn't THAT relevant, but is Cream really her name in the movie or is that just her stripper name? Because if they say "Cream" in serious scenes in the movie...

    sounded pretty relevant to me.

    There will be a time, in the near future, that academics who specialize in Film Studies will dissect and analyze the hoodrat genre of Black Cinema. They will pontificate via studies, papers, books, and lectures on the aesthetic qualities, the social significance and the influence that lead to such genre. They will probably take all the way back to New Jack City and speak about the peak of the Master P Era of the sub-urban genre. What they will not say is that because of the access to digital technology, the dumbing down of America, and the crass aggressive capitalism epitomized by the mortgage meltdown was a conducive environment for this badly put together schlock. This is bad storytelling (This trailer stinks) bad acting, bad lighting. All around bad film making. But no matter how much we Black cineaste hem and haw. This subgenre of urban film --the "(keeping it real) hoodrat" genre is here to stay.

    Yep--just like so many people now wax poetic about how great the blaxploitaiton era was. Every time i try to watch one of those movies I try really hard to put myself in that time period to appreciate it, but can't get past how awful they are. Except for Cleopatra Jones-lol. Your comment makes me think i should have considered writing a 'hoodrat genre' analysis for my thesis.

    You people will never learn. If you dont like something, you should avoid it. You could have saved yourself your "throwing up".
