Film noir hits the mean streets of 1990s Los Angeles in this stylish and subversive underworld odyssey from veteran actor-director Bill Duke (The Killing Floor).

Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) stars as Russell Stevens/John Hull, a police officer who goes undercover as the partner of a dangerously ambitious cocaine trafficker (The Fly's Jeff Goldblum) in order to infiltrate and bring down a powerful Latin American drug ring operating in LA.

But the further Stevens descends into this ruthless world of money, violence, and power, the more disillusioned he becomes-and the harder to make out the line between right and wrong, crime and justice. Steeped in shadowy, neon-soaked atmosphere and featuring Dr. Dre's debut solo single, this unsung gem of the nineties' Black cinema explosion delivers a riveting character study and sleek action thrills alongside a furious moral indictment of America and the devastating failures of the war on drugs.

Deep Cover is given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 23rd August 2021 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
