The Glass Shield

1995, Movie, PG-13, 109 mins

Uncommonly perceptive drama about race, crime, and masculinity in urban America from director Charles Burnett (To Sleep with Anger). J.J. Johnson (Michael Boatman) is a naive black cop whose loyalties are tested when his frankly racist colleagues hang a frame on Teddy Woods (Ice Cube), a low-life gangster who represents everything J.J. despises. Lori Petty (Tank Girl) plays J.J.'s sole ally on the force; Michael Ironside is impressive as a renegade detective. The look is velvety, rich, and stylized; the tone is reflective and ultimately tragic.
Released: 1995 Rated: PG-13 Length: 109 mins
