8 mile
director: curtis hanson
Eminem plays a barely-fictional version of himself trying to make a name as a rapper in bombed-out Motown while struggling with rival thug mcs, his screwed-up (but loving) mom, scenester users who pretend to be his friends, and, like, poverty or whatever. As an actor, Em handles the spectrum of moods from pent-up rage to explosive rage with facility.
