10 December 1998 | Dave-243
Pointed, Important
I feel the need to comment after reading the glib and superior chat of a person who focuses on the technical aspects of filmmaking and completely misses the power of the whole piece.

Any American who has seriously thought about race relations, and more specifically the Black experience in this country, must take this movie to be a powerfully realistic portrait of one Black man's attempt to escape the negativity that surrounds him. There are high stakes, there is inescapable conflict, and there is no easy solution, only that greater negativity will not answer the question. As real as a film can be.
