It's A Trap
The Star Wars saga continues with J.J. Abrams as the director of Episode VII and rumors popping up of a stand-alone flick centered around Yoda, the ancient Jedi master. It’s doubtful, though, that the space opera can keep up with the twists & turns of R. Kelly’s sprawling 33-chapter video epic, Trapped in the Closet, which gets the sing-along treatment at FilmBar Saturday, February 16.
What started out as a five-part song suite at the end of the R&B legend’s 2005 album, TP.3 Reloaded, grew into an ever-escalating hip hopera with Kells acting as both the narrator and Sylvester, a lothario whose cheating embroils him in a hilarious melodrama of sex, guns, and a little-person stripper. Indie electro-dance outfit Treasure Mammal kicks things off with a dance party that leads up to the sing-along, bolstered by on-screen captions for the uninitiated.
