Devil in a Blue Dress

Directed by Carl Franklin and brilliantly shot by Tak Fujimoto, this is one of the few novels by black hard-boiled writer Walter Mosley to make it to the screen. Following the exploits of Watts detective Easy Rawlins, the film takes a long hard look at institutionalised racism in America and the nefarious nature of US politics.
