Menace II Society (1993)
It’s possible to get viewers on the side of a villain, Goodfellas (1990) did it, but Menace doesn't. It’s well-shot and the acting is really good, but the main characters were tirelessly unsympathetic, deserving of the fates they themselves set in motion. The supporting characters are the only relief, with one in particular delivering the one truly memorable scene twenty minutes before the end. You’ll know it when you see it.
