"Turned on the TV this morning. Had this shit on about living in a violent world. Showed all these foreign places, where foreigners live and all. Started thinking, man. Either they don't know, don't show, or don't care about what's going on in the hood." - Doughboy (Ice Cube), Boyz n the Hood
I don't write much about the movies I love (if at all anything, to be honest) so this is a biggie for me. Watched this absolute blistering marvel of a film the other night. Wanted to cry and hug my parents but realised everyone was asleep haha. Boyz n the Hood hits you like a stun grenade. It paralyses you in a way that only great films seem to know how to do. But like all great films, it lifts you up gently like a cloud, letting you know that there's still love in this ugly, senseless and cruel world. I don't know whether I would have been able to watch some of the scenes in this movie if not for that beautiful cloud. Thanks John for inviting me into your crazy world. I only wish it wasn't so real. Do yourself a huge favour and check this one out. You won't be the same again. .
