Matty Rich's "Straight Out of Brooklyn"
Sobering look at a working-class black family's dead-end existence in the housing projects of Brooklyn, N. Y. , and a young man's foolish scheme to turn their lives around. Ambitious and interesting first feature for teen-aged writer-director Rich (who also appears on-screen as the talkative Larry). Extremely rough-edged, but redeemed by some fine performances--and searing emotions. VHS & DVD
