"the Director was a Bit already at the age of 24."
"So wrote the Ice Cube on Twitter about the director and his friend John Singleton."
"More stars can sign it."
"On 29 april, died John Singleton, who at the age of 24, became the youngest person ever to be nominated for an Oscar for Best director."
"While Singleton was on the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and fought for his life after a severe stroke, I saw a pure event, the comedy ”Friday” (1995). It is about two gräsrökande buddies who spend a Friday sitting on the porch and watching all the colourful characters in the neighbourhood. Frivolous basically, but the film became a hit. With rapper and actor Ice Cube in the lead role and its depiction of afroamerikaners everyday life, it is clear that Singletons spirit rests over the ”Friday”."
"Four years earlier, the director shines through with ”Boyz n the hood”, an intelligent and affectionate portrait of what it is like to grow up in south Los Angeles. This was a clear move of personal experiences and Singleton fought to filmbolagscheferna would let him get directing his own story. Who else would make it better? He learned the craft during the trip."
"In the movie is starring Three (Cuba Gooding Jr) to go through the same things that all tonårskillar, but the surroundings is a challenge in itself. He longs to leave Los Angeles. To avoid gangs, violence, guns and a police force whose primary reflex is oppression, even the men in uniform who share his skin color."
"the Film gained protected status"
"John Singletons the following movies did not have the same strength, but the director was faithful to his style and his message. The purpose of the romantic ”Poetic justice” (1993) was to highlight young black women, ”Life's hard school” (1995) called rasrelationer among students and ”Rosewood” (1997) spoke about a historic event when a group of white men murdered african americans in Florida in 1923."
"even when the Singleton is increasingly in the 00's started making formulaic thrillers and actionrullar burned a flame for social messages. As in the remake of ”Shaft” (2000) which placed the classic 70-talspolisen in the duel with a sneer, racist rikemansson. On the other hand, you probably have to look about to find some deeper purpose behind the dreary racinguppföljaren ”2 fast 2 furious” (2003)."
"He leaves behind a clear legacy. Earlier in the year he got to see two of the people who started their careers together with him in ”Boyz n the hood”, Regina King and Peter Ramsey, receiving Oscars for the films ”If Beale Street could talk” and ”Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse”."
"After dödsbeskedet, there was every reason for the Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr, Laurence Fishburne, Angela Bassett and Taraji P Henson to also consider how their careers would have been without John Singleton."
