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.
