Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In this setting, the actors could easily disappear into speeches or stereotypes, but they don't; the film's strength is that it sustains an intimate and realistic tone.
Fresh: Even in its warmest moments, there is a fearful chill in this hood's air. And on the hearts of its boyz.
Fresh: An absorbing, smartly made dramatic encyclopedia of problems and ethics in the black community, 1991.
Fresh: Like a jazz ensemble, Singleton and his actors slowly involve us in an almost sensual melange of moods, images and situations that take us inside the ghetto in a way mainstream films almost never do.
