Strapped

This first feature strains a little hard (it's another in-your-face Scorsese), but the handling becomes more assured and the final result is impressive. Set on the streets of New York, it's the tale of Diquan, a youth who turns to selling guns and information as a way of raising his pregnant girlfriend's bail. A burning indictment of the inner-city circle of strife.
