Zooman (1995)


  • Louis Gossett Jr.
  • Charles S. Dutton
  • Cynthia Martells
Although probably better on the stage this screen adaption has a powerful intensity to it that is worth seeing. And this story of a neighborhood more comfortable remaining silent than speaking up about a murder of a little girl, certainly deserves a bigger audience than it would get on stage.

Taking an interesting dual POV - the child's shooter (Zooman) speaking directly to camera and the neighbors and family playing out their story in a more traditional narrative style, the script highlights the twisted logic of people who know they did the wrong thing but need to justify it.

Definitely worth a look and a think.
