From the Archives: Writer and Director Richard Price.

Novelist and screenwriter Richard Price. His screenwriting credits include "The Color of Money," "Sea of Love," and Martin Scorsese's section of "New York Stories," and now, "Clockers." He co-wrote the screenplay with Spike Lee. His novel "Clockers" is a murder mystery set in the world of a crack dealer in New Jersey. Christopher Lehmann-Haupt of The New York times writes "the signal achievement of the book "Clockers" is to make us feel the enormous power of these giants that are drugs, alcoholism, poverty."
