The Glass Shield

Directed by Charles Burnett
United States, 1994
Crime, Drama


Overlooked auteur Charles Burnett’s first major studio venture was this provocative and suspenseful commentary on the efforts of a young officer to be integrated into the LAPD. During the course of duty, his own values are sorely tested, and most of the police come up short on any scale of justice.
