The fourth film of the inaugural season of the Underground Cinema’s “Must See Cinema” series is curated by poet Crystal Good.
About December’s film: New Jack City (1991)
Drug tycoon Nino Brown (Wesley Snipes) and his minions, known collectively as the Cash Money Brothers, have rapidly risen to the top of the New York City narcotics trade. Under Nino’s heartless leadership, the drug operation has grown into a multimillion-dollar empire. Scotty (Ice-T) and Nick (Judd Nelson), two police officers who know their way around the streets of Harlem, aim to bring Nino and his cohorts down. To do so, though, they’ll have to play by Nino’s rules and go undercover.
“Must See Cinema” brings Charleston film lovers from all walks of life together to talk about a movie that they have a strong connection to. Each month there is a new film and a new curator. Movies grab people in a lot of different ways, and our curators pick films they are passionate about. Whether it is because the film made them think about something differently, they think it is underrated, or they just think it is so great that it deserves a screening, each month’s curator will be passionate about that month’s film. The curated film will be shown on Thursday nights throughout the month.
The first Thursday of the month is a special night where the curator will be present and have a conversation about the movie with an interviewer as well as the audience. The audience will both get to see the movie and get the added value of hearing why the curator think it is special.
