Allen Hughes

Along with twin brother director Albert Hughes, he directed Menace II Society and other "gritty" (as they say) stuff.

American Pimp (1999) -- Co-directed with Albert Hughes. Pretty great documentary about pimps. At one time a comedy and a horror movie (as in "how horrible!"). The subject matter is people who are as charming and funny as they are disgusting. Pretty much needs to be seen. B

From Hell (2001) -- Co-directed with Albert Hughes. A pretty mediocre movie about Jack the Ripper. C
