To Sleep With Anger

- Directed by: Charles Burnett
- Written by: Charles Burnett
- Cast: Danny Glover, Richard Brooks, Paul Butler, Mary Alice
An ambitious and charming attempt by black director Burnett to confront racial tensions in the US. Based on an old Georgian legend, it tells the story of traditionalist shit-stirrer Trickster, who visits friends in LA and causes everyone a lot of bother. Keenly political yet warm-hearted, this is a kind of Southern/West Coast response to Spike Lee's 'Do the Right Thing2.
