  • The Glass Shield

    1994. USA. Written and directed by Charles Burnett. With Michael Boatman, Lori Petty, Ice Cube, Elliott Gould. Burnett’s first major studio venture—it was released by Miramax—is a provocative and suspenseful commentary on the efforts of a young black officer to be integrated into the all-white Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. In the process, his own values are sorely tested, and most of the police come up short on any scale of justice. 115 min.
