Oscars ‘91 continues this week with a movie that lives up to the title of the show, because we really should have seen this movie already. John Singleton, right out of film school, created a narrative that was so authentic and poignant that it didn’t matter how predictable the story arc was. The plot isn’t complicated, the characters are relatively simple, but it’s the reality of life in South Central LA that makes this movie so incredibly powerful. That, and incredible performances from a cast of rising stars, all poised to become household names in the wake of the movie. Grab some barbecue and settle in for Boyz n The Hood on Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!
