Critic Reviews for Zebrahead

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (4)

  • Sometimes Zebrahead spells things out too neatly, and the talk at the end gets a little didactic. But Drazan's clear-eyed affection for his characters is contagious. His heartfelt, plain-spoken movie achieves real, unforced power.

  • 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.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • Zebrahead is not so much a movie as notes toward a movie - a good one, judging by what's on the screen.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Zebrahead is a thoughtful film that speaks honestly and hopefully to urban teens. Drazan has earned his stripes.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • In Anthony Drazan's enjoyably offbeat Zebrahead, racial definition is the least important thing about anybody.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • It is a remarkable first film, not only for what it says about friendship, love and antagonisms between young urban blacks and whites, but for how sharply it reveals a city making headlines even now with a new, true tragedy.
