To Sleep With Anger

SUPPORT

A slow-burning masterwork of the early 1990s, this third feature by acclaimed filmmaker Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep) is a singular piece of American mythmaking.
In a towering performance, Danny Glover plays the enigmatic southern drifter Harry, a devilish charmer who turns up out of the blue on the South Central Los Angeles doorstep of his old friends. In short order, Harry’s presence seems to cast a chaotic spell on what appeared to be a peaceful household, exposing smoldering tensions between parents and children, tradition and change, virtue and temptation. Interweaving evocative strains of gospel and blues with rich, poetic-realist images, To Sleep with Anger is a sublimely stirring film from an autonomous artistic sensibility, a portrait of family resilience steeped in the traditions of African American mysticism and folklore. (Dir. by Charles Burnett, 1990, USA, 102 mins., Rated PG)
