This ambitious 1995 film by John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood)
doesn't quite succeed at painting the illuminating, collective
portrait of college life in the '90s that the director seeks. But
Singleton does do a fine job of defining some conflicting impulses
for young people on the cusp of adulthood, particularly the desire
to broaden horizons on the one hand and circle the wagons with
like-minded allies on the other. Students in the film's Columbus
University divide themselves along lines of race, sexual
preferences, ideology, and, most dangerously, levels of paranoia.
Among the fine cast is Michael Rapaport, who portrays a loner drawn
to a local community of neo-Nazis. His resultant problems with the
school's African-Americans takes over the story at the expense of
other, parallel dramas, but Singleton's insights into race hatred
on campus--a microcosm of the surrounding culture--is not to be
dismissed. --Tom Keogh
