Chris Rock ensures this doco is fun and informative. Good hair is good movie!
i found this fascinating - an easy and informative watch.
Wow, what an insight into the lengths people go for their hair. Very interesting!
Chris Rock explores the wonders of African-American hairstyles. I found the film fascinating
Chris Rock's foray into documentary film making was very interesting. The world of 'black hair' is an interesting place! A well put together documentary, with interesting subjects and interviews.
But I can see how someone with no interest in hair, hair shows or hair products or the African American culture may find it incredeibly boring.
Watch this only if your interested in the subject matter - and not if your purely a Chris Rock comedy fan.,
Couldn't sit down and watch it, not my kinda thing.
It was pretty bad to say the least. I actually thought it was a comedy movie until I watched it. Although I did go to the hairdressers the next day...............
What an eye-opener! I had no idea that so many black women put themselves through such ordeals, never mind the expense, to achieve what they consider better-looking hair. It is bizarre that their hair in its natural state is deemed unattractive to so many women in the USA. And a real shame that children as young as 3 years old are having such strong chemicals put on their heads to achieve the "relaxed" hair look. A very interesting documentary and Chris Rock handles the subject with intelligence and humour. It's not a comedy but has a light touch and was an enjoyable movie to watch.
What a wast of 96mins, boring boring boring
Good movie, rather surprising!
Why don't African American love their natural hair - it looks wonderful. Was surprised that "weaves" is the norm. Embrace the afro ladies!
I found this doco so informative... I never knew about the secret society of weaves and all they entail. Listen to Ice T's summing up at the end of the film; never a truer word was so eloquently put!
I LOVED THIS DOCUMENTARY
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY WAS SPENT ON HAIR
Disclosure: This review is written by an American living in Australia.
I loved this documentary. I thought the pace was good, and Chris Rock is entertaining as he guides us through what he learns.
I grew up in areas where as a white skinned person I was always the minority, and I spent many an hour having my hair intricately braided by my African-American class mates because my hair was 'easy'. I suppose many Australians will view the peek into these cultural rituals as just more America eccentricities but I really do think even if the subject matter seems funny, any viewer will get an insight to an unfamiliar culture in an interesting way.
I also think the commentary on ideas of beauty and pressure young girls can feel though socialization is important.
