Joey's top choice

standard

Hatred (standard)

From the Criterion Collection: “Matthew Kassovitz takes the film world by storm with ‘Matthew Kassovitz’ hatred, A gritty, disturbing and visually explosive look at the racial and cultural fluctuations of modern France, specifically the low-income suburbs of Paris. Vinz (played by Vincent Cassel), Hubert (played by Hubert Condé) and Said (played by Said Tagmaoui) – respectively Jewish, African and Arabs – who spend their days aimlessly in the concrete surroundings of cul-de-sac suburbs – give a human face to France’s immigrant population. Their deep resentment at their marginalization slowly simmers until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tenacity and beauty, hatred is a milestone in French cinema in the 1990s and a profound reflection on the country's ongoing identity crisis.
