Directed by Bill Duke | 1992

With Laurence Fishburne, Jeff Goldblum, Charles Martin Smith

 
 

This neglected, fascinatingly subversive thriller from actor-turned-director Bill Duke stars Laurence Fishburne in his first leading role as a cop who goes undercover to infiltrate a gang of LA drug dealers—a masquerade that he’s forced to take to disturbing extremes. It’s a premise that raises (á la Fanon) troubling issues surrounding black masculinity, identity, and performance, all wrapped in a stylish neo-noir package.

Intro by film theorist and author Michael B. Gillespie.
