The rhymes that 'Lawrence Fishburne''s character recites, such as "The jungle creed says that the strong must feed on any prey at hand..." are lyrics taken from the record 'Reflections' by best-selling black author 'Iceberg Slim'. Bill Duke, who is a great fan of Iceberg Slim's work, wrote a screenplay of his autobiography "Pimp" which never made it to production. See more »

cool & hard, 'Deep Cover' takes cop story beyond the usual boundaries.
Hard-hitting and stylish, this film quickly moves beyond the usual notion of 'undercover drug work' into an altogether more practical & unpleasant understanding...
The film is well-paced and, most appropriately for this year, introduces a female art-gallery owner as it develops a relationship subplot. As the story progresses, the film breaks boundaries further & demonstrates an exceptionally sharp sensibility -- but fairly much returns to the standards for the climactic scene.
While not a Scorsese or Tarantino masterpiece, this film is very highly recommended.
