R. Kelly: Trapped in the Closet: Chapters 1-12 contains the videos for the first dozen sections of he R. Kelly song. The extensive hip-hop opera's story concerns a man who is carrying on affair with a woman who is herself married to a man engaged in a homosexual affair with a second man. Jealousy and anger sweep through all of the characters, each of whom are committing adultery. The first five chapters were released on R. Kelly's album TP3: Reloaded. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Trapped in the Closet can be appreciated if you handle it the right way: imagine R. Kelly is serious about this. Really serious. Imagine he wrote out the story, said "OOHH MAN, THIS IS GOLD" and went forward with the project. After that, all you can think while watching is "wait.. what...? how did this get made..?", all the while, you're laughing (real, gut busting laughter) as the story gets more and more preposterous. Just when you think it can't get any more ridiculous, it does, and it's fantastic. Make sure you watch this with someone (preferably someone who hasn't seen it), though, because when you're finished, you'll need someone to verify what you just saw.
