Boyz n the Hood ★★★★½

✨👭Friendship Film Club👫✨ #30

'Boyz n the Hood' was absolutely brutal. The reason for this is because of its truth - not one word spoken in this film showed any sense of falsehood or deception. Everything is true and still happening today, I don't know what to tell you. I could never dream of being in the positions of these expertly crafted characters, or even in the positions of anyone experiencing such turmoil.
I obviously need to point out the incredible performances and writing and how they enhanced the realism of the story. I also want to highlight one of the best father/son dynamics I have ever seen on screen: Laurence Fishburne and Cuba Gooding Jr. were the most wholesome and genuinely kind little duo and I absolutely wanted nothing bad to happen to either of them. I think it's safe to say that this is a very important film that is still so immensely relevant in the classist, racist world we continue to live in.

(again, Indhi just keeps choosing hard-hitting dramas, go off)
