Boyz N The Hood - Cross cutting Between Action

by Philana Payton

The suspense of Tre and Ricky trying to escape is heightened with the use of cross cutting between the scenes of Dough Boy (Ice Cube) trying to get to his brother Ricky in time.

The scene also uses Ricky's dream of upward mobility through his skill of football as a symbol in the fact the he must use his athleticism to run for his life.
