The Interrupters 3.0 stars

Interrupters movie poster

Steve James (Hoop Dreams) spent a year documenting the efforts of a trio of reformed hardcore gangbangers working to bring peace to Chicago’s volatile Englewood neighborhood. Instead of touting sports or rap music as the golden ticket, the “violence interrupters” champion a psychological approach to peaceful coexistence in an urban war zone. Another documentary that’s more engrossing (and enlightening) than 80 percent of its narrative counterparts. 2011.
