Boyz N The Hood

Viewed: 04 December 2005
Directed by:
Listed in: ,

A far less violent depiction of intercity life then I had previously thought, Boyz n the Hood was smart and realistic in its portrayal of the struggle against poverty, crime and racism in a forgotten community. Most surprising to me were all the references to other films, the nods to Stand By Me, a possible connection to Apocalypse Now. The film tried hard not only to establish not only the characters and story, but also its own virtue as a film. I had expected something far different and was very impressed.
