Top Urban Films

This list of the top urban films that have influenced our culture and music. Of course, some great flicks were left out.

Special consideration was given to independent films produced by directors. Again, the films were not judged on commercial success but, artistic merit.

Note: This is a work in progress and new influential films will be added as there completed.
