Director: John Singleton
1991 / 112min / DCP

Singleton’s debut, released when the director was only 23 and based on his first-hand experience of growing up in South Central Los Angeles, is a portrait of a community little-depicted from the insider’s perspective, with Cuba Gooding Jr. as high-school age “Tre,” recently sent off to live with disciplinarian father Laurence Fishburne in Crenshaw, and Ice Cube—in a role custom-written for him—as “Doughboy,” a local Crip who introduces Tre to gang life. “One of the best American movies of recent years… a thoughtful, realistic look at a young man’s coming of age, and also a human drama of rare power.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
