John Singleton United States, 1991

Zac Weber's rating of the film Boyz n the Hood

I'm tempted to nitpick at some of the movie's cliche "Hollywood" moments, but it's simply incredible to think this was John Singleton's debut. Boyz N The Hood is complicated, tragic, defiant, and ultimately a landmark in the history of American cinema.
