Staff Pick! Chosen by both Kashif and Marilyn.
“The college campus in John Singleton’s new film is a racial and ideological war zone, where students rarely talk to other students who are not more or less just like themselves. Early in the film, a black freshman is given a tour of the turfs staked out by various racial groups: “There’s Chinatown…the Black Hole… Disneyland…South of the Border…” The enforced segregation of the past has been replaced by a new, voluntary xenophobia, and the result is a dreary place in which people define themselves by negatives.
Screening as part of our Summer 2019 series, “Weekend Classics: Staff Picks.”
