Menace II Society (1993) (Criterion Collection) UK Only Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Directors Albert and Allen Hughes(The Book of Eli) and screenwriter Ttger Williams (The Perfect Guy) were barely into their twenties when they sent shock waves through American cinema and hip-hop culture with this fatalistic, unflinching vision of life and death on the streets of Watts, Los Angeles, in the 1990s. There, in the shadow of the riots of 1965 and 1992, young Caine (Panther's Tyrin Turner) is growing up under the influence of his ruthless, drugdealing father (Pulp Fiction's SAMUEL L. JACKSON, in a chilling cameo) and his loose-cannon best friend, O-Dog... (Love Jones' Larenz Tate), leading him into a spiral of violent crime from which he is not sure he wants to escape, despite the best efforts of his grandparents and the steadfast Ronnie (The Matrix Revolutions' Jada Pinkett). Fusing grim realism with a propulsively stylish aesthetic honed through the Hughes brothers' work on rap videos, Menace II Society is a searing cautionary tale about the devastating human toll of hopelessness.
