One of my all-time favourites, stylish with great music
Wonderfully stylish movie with Laurence Fishburne at his very best. Lots of cool visual techniques and great music (featuring Snoop Dogg's debut with Dr Dre - "187 on an undercover cop"). Jeff Goldblum gives one of his better more enigmatic performances. Lots of cool dialogue with some prosaic (if that's the word!) monologues from Fishburne. A must see - own it on video and watch it over and over...
