Writer-director John Singleton’s BOYZ N THE HOOD takes us into south central Los Angeles, Crenshaw specifically, to observe what life is like for a group of friends as they grow into young adulthood with violence or the threat of violence a part of their community. Cuba Gooding Jr., Ice Cube, Morris Chestnut, and Laurence Fishburne are among the cast of Singleton’s 1991 debut film.
In recommendations, Mark Pfeiffer thrills to the ancient Chinese action and political intrigue in Zhang Yimou’s SHADOW (YING). Paul Markoff appreciates the drama and dark humor in Ruben Ӧstlund’s FORCE MAJEURE (TURIST).
