South Central ★★ 1992 (R)
A low-budget urban drama set in a gang-infested L.A. neighborhood. Bobby is a young black man, and former gang leader, who has spent ten years in prison for murder. His wife has become a drug addict and his young son Jimmie has begun running with his dad's old gang. Now paroled, Bobby hopes to re-establish the bond with his son—enough to protect him from following in his nowhere-to-go-but-down footsteps. Worthy effort with an emotional ending. Feature debut of director Anderson. Based on the novel “Crips” by Donald Bakeer. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Glenn Plummer, Carl Lumbly, Christian Coleman, LaRita Shelby, Byron Keith Minns; D: Steve (Stephen M.) Anderson; W: Steve (Stephen M.) Anderson; C: Charlie Lieberman; M: Tim Truman.
