by Hype Williams. 1998. 96 min.
In his feature film debut, DMX stars as a self-assured gangster born and bred in Queens, NYC. Packed with music icons like Missy Elliott, Nas, Jay-Z and Method Man, it’s the only feature film from music video master Hype Williams. With its super-stylized fisheye shots and sensuously saturated colors, Belly is an ode to the 90’s hip-hop aesthetic.
