Metacritic

100

A shockingly powerful screed against racism that also manages to be so well performed and directed that it is entertaining as well. [30 October 1998, Friday, p.A]

A series of well-drawn sketches and powerful scenes, in search of an organizing principle.

Unflinching in its depiction of racism, anti-Semitism, violence and jailhouse politics.
