Movie Info

An interracial romance sparks social upheaval in this indie drama from first-time writer/director Anthony Drazan. Jewish high school student Zack Glass (Michael Rapaport) lives with his widowed, womanizing father (Ray Sharkey) in one of the nicer areas of Detroit. His pop and grandfather own a pair of vintage record stores full of everything from swing and jazz to soul and disco; Zack carries on the vinyl-centric family tradition by selling hip-hop mix tapes out of his locker and mixing fiddles

In the absence of the usual teen-movie pyrotechnics, Zebrahead has a quiet, stagy style, more like a 1950's teleplay with a social conscience than a stormy present-day tale of racial strife.

Zebrahead is a thoughtful film that speaks honestly and hopefully to urban teens. Drazan has earned his stripes.

Zebrahead is not so much a movie as notes toward a movie - a good one, judging by what's on the screen.

In Anthony Drazan's enjoyably offbeat Zebrahead, racial definition is the least important thing about anybody.

The movie takes us to the two places where bigotry are both nurtured and perpetuated, the home (here single parent) and the racially diverse school, where the youngsters prove more mature and open-minded than their parents.

A movie more earnest and well-meaning than wholly successful, Zebrahead is still worthy of praise - if only for treating its teenagers like actual people.

The shooting seems like a lame attempt to inflate a small, well-observed story with a significance it hasn't earned.

The 'Okay, so what?' dissatisfied feeling does not serve this film well.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

Some of the film comes off as rather superficial, but there are moments of truth that ring throughout.

The pulsing beats collected by music supervisor M.C. Serch...act almost as another living player in the film, imbuing it with a certitude which surely would have left Drazan's film lacking had it not been there.

The film is often overwrought, even if it is well-meaning...The ending is especially unconvincing, as it seems to switch to the end credits while still in midstream.
