Gummo in the movie Belly
(Posted on 6/26/13 at 11:24 pm)
Haven't seen Belly in years and just now realized that's the movie he puts on in the beginning. Is there any background to this or just something random? From what I know there doesn't seem to be much connection between Hype Williams and Gummo.

I never got the connection either, but I saw Belly before Gummo. I didn't know what Gummo was till like a few months later when a few of my black friends made me watch it. So I'm just kind of wondering if Gummo became an iconic cult film for black people seems like they were always on the underground stuff before we are
ETA: and what better movie to make fun of all of us than Gummo.
