Lee shifts the focus of Richard Price's weighty novel away from Keitel's mid-life crisis cop onto young drug dealer Pfifer, but the result is not just another cycle-of-violence ghetto movie. The murder whodunnit provides a suspenseful core narrative, the issues are raised without resorting to the soapbox. Gripping, coherent and accessible.
