  • Lacks the cumulative impact of "Boyz," since Singleton allows repetition and sermonizing to dull his theme about the infantilization of black males. But Baby Boy leaves you shaken. show more

  • Now Singleton, too, dares to take a hard look at his community. His characters are a little older, and he is older, too, and less forgiving. show more

  • An easy movie to pick apart, but it lives, breathes and switches moods from humor to despair better than any American release this year. show more
