An All-Time Classic

To me this is one of the greatest movies of all time on many levels. Primarilly, the character development is extremely deep. Anyone watching this movie can understand the strengths and fears of Lorenzo, Sonny, Colegelo, as well as some of the more supporting players. Secondly, the story depicts race relations at a changing time in this country. It describes it without taking sides and showing lots of grey areas. Not just black and white. Thirdly, it shows the innerworkings of organized crime and how people in today's society are influenced by it. Finally, the conflict Cologelo experiences by being torn between two role models, his father and the neighborhood good fellow crime boss who acts like a fatherly figure, is the central theme and explored very well through each charactes eyes. Overall, this movie has nos wasted moments and will keep you hooked from start to finish.
