Trapped in the Closet



Having now seen all 5 parts of R. Kelly's "urban opera" (R-rated...no pun intended...soap opera is more like it) series of videos, I have to say that it begs the question of whether our man R is a certified genius...or just certifiable :-)

Personally I think it's a real hoot...but your mileage may vary. The acting is suitably overwrought, the cliffhangers and "surprise" twists are perfectly silly, and, your better judgment notwithstanding, the climax (you'll pardon the expression) leaves you wanting more of this gloriously insane story (there be plot points dangling over all the place.)

"Trapped in the Closet (Parts 1-5)"...genius or madness? You be the judge...

For my part: hey R, bring on parts 6-10! :-)

I found the urban opera to be very entertaining and it's probably what R. Kelly needed to try to make us forget a few transgressions-ha!
