NOTES

"With "Punk" and "Laurel Avenue", Carl Franklin has made the best American movies I have seen so far this year. "Punk" is great enough to make Franklin seem to be the Black filmmaker everyone has been waiting for. Charles Burnett and Wendell B. Harris are idiosyncratic artists out of left field (so is Spike Lee, who comes from the infield), but Franklin works in a plain, linear mode, on ostensibly topical matters that he gives the imaginative richness of artistry. His specialty is not the violent hysterics of kid directors like The Hughes Brothers, Mario Van Peebles, Matty Rich, but wisdom and beauty." --From "Carl Franklin Rises to the Top with 'Punk'" by Armond White, THE CITY SUN, August 18-August 24, 1995.
