DEAD PRESIDENTS (1995 U.S.) D/W/P: THE HUGHES BROTHERS W: MICHAEL HENRY BROWN
Second feature from the directors of MENACE II SOCIETY charts the progress of Bronx youth Larenz Tate from high school graduate to 'nam hero and back to the unfriendly streets of N.Y.C. where he plans an armoured car robbery. Keith David, Chris Tucker, N'Bushe Wright, Freddy Rodriguez and Bookeem Woodbine are his partners in crime. Too many critics misunderstood this as a serious message movie i think, where in fact it works better as a cartoonish crime movie with decent characterizations and back-story. But it seems to just run out of track rather than end properly. With James Pickens Jr., Jennifer Lewis, Clifton Powell, Terrence Dashon Howard, Sticky Fingaz, Michael Imperioli, Jaimz Woolvett, Clifton Collins Jr., Heather B. and uncredited appearances from Isaiah Washington, Martin Sheen and Seymour Cassel. The Hughes Brothers made the documentary AMERICAN PIMP next.
