To Sleep with Anger (1990, 102 min), by Charles Burnett - Danny Glover stars as a devilish visitor from down South, who visits Los Angeles and stirs up trouble for a black middle-class family.
Charles Burnett's beautiful, poetic masterpiece is novelistic in its narrative density and richness of characterization. Harry Mention, an enigmatic drifter from the South, comes to visit an old acquaintance named Gideon, who now lives in South-Central Los Angeles. Harry's charming, down-home manner hides a malicious penchant for stirring up trouble, and he exerts a strange and powerful effect on Gideon and his thoroughly assimilated black, middle-class family.
