Dead Presidents
1995
****
Director: The Hughes brothers
Cast: Larenz Tate, Keith David, Chris Tucker, N’bushe Wright, Rose Jackson

A gripping and violent drama about the reality of young black men before, during and after the Vietnam War. The story is devoid of any hope, but the performances are strong and the Hughes brothers are a pair of very dynamic filmmakers. Partly based on the book Bloods: An Oral History of the Vietnam War by Black Veterans by Wallace Terry.
