Race and sex bubble up in this college-based drama from Boyz N The Hood director John Singleton
After Boyz N the Hood (1991) and Poetic Justice (1993), writer-director Singleton shifted his attention from the ghetto to America's embattled universities and their struggle with multiculturalism.
Higher Learning enrols three new students (Epps, Swanson and Rapaport) at the fictional Columbus University and watches them evolve under the pressures of outside forces: black and white militancy, feminism and their new-found liberty.
The film lapses into polarized melodrama but it's a handsome piece, displaying a fair understanding of our desperate need to belong.
Ice Cube puts in another bristling performance for Singleton as a sloganeering brother, and Laurence Fishburne adds further quality as Epps's wise tutor.
