san’s review published on Letterboxd:
La Haine is a great example of genius filmmaking. There are plenty of interesting camera angles and cinematic shots; it truly manages to capture your attention this way. It has a dense script that’s written true to its characters and filled with perfect comedic timing.
It’s a film about how hatred breeds hatred, and the lack of control towards this conflict is all the more frustrating. There’s also philosophical themes on insignificance and existentialism, which completely fit the story.
The only disappointing part about this movie is that I can’t think of anything else like this.
