In Hudson City, N.J., whites, blacks, unions and the police form their own tribes and jockey for influence over pieces of hard-won turf. This drama's multifaceted storyline follows several residents (Vincent Spano, Tony Lo Bianco, Angela Bassett, Joe Morton and Chris Cooper, among others), whose paths intersect amidst the decaying city. Writer-director John Sayles has said that this pungent and evocative film is his most autobiographical piece.

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

"What are the basic elements that compose a City Of Hope? Basically, when the inner workings of the city are made up of the three c's; crime, corruption and the worst of them all, compromise. And of course, those are the main ingredients that are used only when the word "Hope" is bureaucratically tainted with a copious amount of social sarcasm. "
