Scumbag Hustler movie scenes

Soloman Crow pays a visit to his god fearing, bible quoting, closeted homosexual brother and his sexually repressed wife. He enters their home with a proclamation to kick a drug habit that almost cost him his life. Broke, it doesn't take Soloman long to start conning and scheming his way around the city to feed his ravenous cravings for dope and sex. Even his brother's wife isn't immune to Soloman's mind games... If you want a hero with redeeming qualities, look somewhere else.


Soloman Crow (Sean Weathers) is a drug addict roaming the streets of Manhattan looking for marks to con out of their money and pretty women to con into sex. Looking to get off the streets for a while and kick his drug habit, he visits his brother Tyler P. Crow (Waliek Crandall), a god fearing, bible quoting, closeted homosexual. The character is a parody of playwright and filmmaker Tyler Perry. While staying there Soloman wastes little time running his mind games on his brothers wife, Tamia (Sybelle Silverphoenix), and together they concoct a murder plot against Tyler that goes terribly awry.


In an interview on Channel Awesome with Diamanda Hagan, Weathers talked about the production of the film, stating that it was all shot guerrilla filmmaking style with just a cinematographer, the other actor he was in the scene with and Weathers himself, on the streets of Manhattan without permits. Most of the exterior scenes were shot on one take, often with Weathers improvising when needed to make sure each take was usable.
