South Central

Genre: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Glenn Plummer, Christian Coleman, Carl Lumbly; Director: Steve Anderson; Author: Steve Anderson; Producer (person): Oliver Stone; Runtime (in minutes): 99; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Although comparisons with Boyz N the Hood may have helped sink this film at the box office, South Central hits its own raw but right chord. Glenn Plummer is a clamped-tight caldron as the jailbird who turns around when his son (Christian Coleman) heads down the same mean streets, and Steve Anderson’s slick direction makes this a vivid piece of agit-pop.
