Review: Straight Outta Compton, 2015, dir. F. Gary Gray


“If there’s one question worth asking after the credits roll on F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton, it’s “Why didn’t he make a series instead of a film?” Next year, Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger will roll out Vinyl, a ten-episode series on HBO that focuses on the developing aural confluence of hip hop, disco and punk rock in 1970s New York. On paper, Gray’s movie wants to be exactly that for legendary rap group N.W.A., but he only has 130 minutes to cover almost a decade’s worth of happenings. Disadvantage: Gray.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
