(4 out of 5 stars)

"SOHP is a gritty and uncomprimising look at one of the worst ghettos in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hunter's Point. Kevin Epps, a former resident who is fortunate enough to still have his ghetto pass lets the camera roll and captures the harsh reality of ghetto life. Black youth hanging out selling drugs, doing donuts in the middle of the streets, drive by shootings and rap music as a means of expression. Epps also documents the cultural history of H.P. by bringing up important facts such as the Hunter's Point riots in the 60s', the chemical pollution coming from the old naval shipyard plants built in WWII and the late 90's rap war between rival turfs. Some of the residents that are interviewed bring their ideas to table about how the community can improve. By the end of the film, Epps makes the point clear about the neighborhood's urgency as many tragic results are captured on camera along the way. This movie is hard to find and you can walk into your local moms and pops shop and see a slew of nonsense straight to DVD documentaries about Hip-Hop or the hood, this is the one to watch."
