New Criticals

In a short "prequel" that is included in the DVD box set, a young Omar (1985) is part of small stick-up crew made up of his older brother and his brother's friend. After they rob an innocent man of sixteen dollars, Omar holds a gun to the kid's face and makes him give the money back after he realizes the man is simply waiting for the bus home. Omar targets only those playing the game, and his rigid fidelity to those rules is both rational and mad at once.
