Talk to Me Review


Good
Two biopics opened this year (within weeks of each other) that analyze gifted men who rise to powerful positions in their chosen professions before eroding beneath the fringe benefits of their unexpected success. Yet beyond that thematic connection, the movies could not be more different.

The first, Leon Ichaso's El Cantante, scrubs away crucial details when recollecting the life of salsa singer Hector Lavoe, leaving an empty shell that begs for further insight.

He's also clashing with his mom's new man, an aging "O.G." named Melvin (Ving Rhames) who's looking to move in; and, he's got to keep his volatile roughneck friend Sweetpea (Cuba Jr.'s brother Omar Gooding) out of trouble, without getting dragged down into more trouble himself. And to top things off, he's seeing competition from Yvette's ex-con ex-boyfriend (the inimitable Snoop Dogg).
