Spoon (Shakur) and Stretch (Roth) are junkies, and avant-jazz musicians who haven't yet sold their instruments. Their singer Cookie (Newton) ODs at New Year's Eve, remains comatose, and the pair decide to kick there and then - but beurocracy and gansters aren't going to make it easy.
Ultimately too slight, Gridlock'd is nonetheless a sharp movie, albeit one forever tainted by the untimely death of its charismatic lead.
