The film Straight Outta Compton, based on the hip hop combo's brief but influential career, shares the power and infectiousness of the album by the same title. Director F. Gary Gray, an old friend and collaborator of NWA alumnus Ice Cube, delivers a biopic that's consistently involving and either circumvents the clichés of the genre or gives them a feeling of authenticity they haven't had in ages.
