Hog Butcher by Ronald L. FairThe unintentional shooting by police of a star basketball player has profound personal, political and community repercussions in this acclaimed adaptation of the novel Hog Butcher by Ronald Fair. This was one of the more thoughtful urban dramas produced at the height of the "blaxploitation" craze. Also released under the title Hit the Open Man, it features the screen debut of Laurence Fishburne, who was barely a teenager at the time. Ronald Fair Leonard Lamensdorf. Review by Sally Jane Black. The tears of a mother at the sight of her dead son are filmed in grit and haze, in warm tones and city street grey, signalling clearly that this is a product of its era, 40 years old, but the statement has been made repeatedly since in a way that makes the moment not merely current but Nothing has changed, nothing probably has ever changed, except that the narrative is somehow smarter on both sides.
