A very fun teen time capsule from 1990 that has a lot on its mind but resists any major dramatics.
A very well-done neo-noir that deals with issues the original film noirs mostly ignored. Denzel Washington plays the detective in over his head.
A Magical Realist story of a Black family in Los Angeles that throws out a lot of ideas, and leaves us to our own conclusions.

A very different kind of sports movie, or maybe a very different kind of romance.
In which we learn that it’s possible to be nostalgic about something yet not remember it as perfect.
