La haine (1995)

It begins with grainy news footage of street riots accompanied by Bob Marley’s »Burning and looting«. What follows is an unhealthy amalgamation of injustice, drugs, racism, and violence. A hectic and intense journey through Paris’ suburbian housing projects – filled with aimless, angry, aggressive young men that easily could be dismissed as ridiculous if they weren’t so dangerously threatening.

Irritating, disturbed, hopeless. In my book of hip hop with Edith Piaf samplings – and a devastatingly Chekhovian gun.
