I was surprised how much I enjoyed this film.
I suppose it is meant to be a sort of semi-autobiographical piece about Eminem (white trash from trailer park raps his way to...well raps). There was the expected degree of foul language, but the depiction of the environment (speaking from rural Dorset about urban Detroit) seemed realistic.
Rabbit (the Eminem character) portrays many of the characteristics of the urban white youth that I see around town. Lippy and arrogant (at least on the surface), but apparently very fragile, certainly very aware of any sleight or lack of respect. This makes him fly into a rage, always verbally abusive, and sometimes violent.
I am not sure how to respond to this. I did find an interesting article about Eminem from a couple of years ago by the look of it. Certainlky young Marshall's influence is enormous. Q Magazine recently nominated him the most powerful person in pop/rock music, and the free music video channel's are rarely without his videos.
Certainly much of that which Eminem (and this rap culture) stands for seems foreign to a middle class white Christian, but just walk round town and hear rap coming from every Nova and Escort being driven by a late teen/early 20 year old.
