Top dog / Underdog

August 18, 2003

A tale about the classical themes of greed and jelousy. This time in the shape of two brothers that are struggling to make it one day at a time.

The older brother (Lincoln) is working at an arcade, pretending to be Abraham Lincoln. His younger brother (Booth) is a hustler.

The acting and costumes were top notch. The street lingo was hard to understand at times. The perfomance is 2:15 long and performed at Royal Court, Sloane Square, London (UK).

Here is a more thorough review.

I was surprised to see one of the actors, Mos Def, in the block buster movie Italian Job. Great performance!
