AFRICAN-AMERICAN NEO-NOIR AT THE BRATTLE

“These four terrific pictures brought issues of race to the forefront of twisty, throwback crime stories. Classic noirs from the ‘40s and ‘50s reflected and amplified the anxieties of traumatized men returning to a changed America after WWII, whereas these ‘90s counterparts applied that sort of doomy, old-fashioned fatalism to structural social injustice.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/22/2021
