Anyay, I didn't really love this one. It was sort of everything I was afraid Claudine would be: preachy, heavy-handed, thinly veiled with the social protest, etc. I was pretty glad when the inciting event in this movie happened and I don't think I was supposed to be.

I did enjoy Antonio Fargas as One-Eye though. I believe one of his eye-patched was plaid or something... so fly. It was also interesting (although not particularly surprising) to see that Laurence Fishburne was always a good actor even as a kid. Too bad he's caught up in his whole Morpheus menacing gravitas thing now... I bet he'd do well with comedy... back to his Pee-Wee's Playhouse days.

So yeah... pretty blah. Oh well. At least Claudine was a Pleasant Surprise. James Earl Jones' performance in that is growing on me already.
