La Haine

La Haine ★★★★★

“Baise la police.”

A violence in a cruel world. A society falling. A subculture of the uproar in the violent suburbs. A study of the psychological dynamics of the effects of living on the edge of society. La Haine is everything that is relevant right now. A provocative, unrestrained, gritty depiction of the political and socioeconomic issues, of the urban realities, and youthful rebellion—revolving around the trio that represents different perspectives and capturing the essence of their culture; presenting with depth and humanizing their actions, and how they lose touch of society. La Haine is certainly one of the best films to address police brutality, racial tensions, and marginalization.
