Straight Outta Compton är filmen om N.W.A, från stadsdelen Compton i Los Angeles. Bandet, som startades i mitten av 1980-talet, var en av de första hip hop-grupperna och Dr. Dre och Ice Cube var några av medlemmarna.
Straight Outta Compton Dreamfilm Review By Alice:
This is one of the best movies of 2015, in my humble opinion. Actually, I rarely go to the movies anymore, but I made a huge exception to go see this one. What caught my attention immediately was the ethnic diversity of the audience. I haven’t seen that kind of variety since I saw ”Rush Hour 3”, where half of the movie patrons were black, and the other Asian!! This shows how movies like ”Straight Outta Compton” bring people together. It bridges the cultural gap. Middle-class people can catch a glimpse into the lifestyle of a teenager growing up in a low-income neighbourhood where often there aren’t a lot of options that don’t involve crime and welfare. At the screening I attended, there were a lot of Koreans. I wonder if this has anything to do with the history of poor relations between blacks and Koreans (merchants) in Los Angeles, especially during the Rodney King riots, and the shooting death of Latasha Harlins, who was a young black girl killed by a female Korean store-owner.
