True American horror. A nation poisoned by racial thought. Lee uses the interracial romance launch pad to discuss the imprisonment of self through one's own doing, race,religion, family, community and nation. In fact this film is more so about familial and community attitudes then anything else. How the family and community entraps individuals in a certain livable space and mindset.

When was the last time that Spike Lee has made something really worthwhile? I guess, it was already 10 years ago with ‘Inside Man’ and all his movies since then have been some critical and commercial failures. It’s too bad because I always had a weak spot for this director. On the other hand, I have to admit that all his early movies were not always some real home-runs and this movie is a pe... read more

Elokuvat 2020 (530 movies items)

"Viehättävän melodramaattinen Spike Lee elokuva rotujenvälisestä rakkaudesta on juuri sitä mitä odottaakin sen olevan. Kaikki hahmot ovat enemmän tai vähemmän rasisminsa vankeja ja hyvä musiikki pauhaa New Yorkin kaduilla. Hieman ylipitkään elokuvaan hupia tuo laaja näyttelijäkaarti; sivuosissa pyörivät mm: Brad Dourif, Anthony Quinn ja Frank Vincent. Elokuvan uskomattomat viimeiset 30 sekuntia saavat minulta 666/5."

“True American horror. A nation poisoned by racial thought. Lee uses the interracial romance launch pad to discuss the imprisonment of self through one's own doing, race,religion, family, community and nation. In fact this film is more so about familial and community attitudes then anything else. How the family and community entraps individuals in a certain livable space and mindset. True apes we are. The character Angie Tucci never leaving her Italian neighbour or Flipper Purify living in Harlem and entrenched with a "pro-black" mindset to showcase the authenticity of his blackness both outside and in.

As a subplot Lee focuses on the crack problem in the black community but it is utilized in such a way to highlight escapism and the pariah class, such as in this tale the lead cha” read more
