The Glass Shield
Charles Burnett, USA, 1995. 108 mins, DVD. M

A scathing look at the racism and corruption of the Los Angeles police force, Burnett’s slickly photographed neo-noir thriller investigates the moral integrity of rookie cop Michael Boatman. The first black officer to serve in an all-white precinct, he is pressured into framing rapper Ice Cube for the murder of a wealthy white woman.

"One of the most penetrating explorations of institutional racism ever made." – New Yorker
