This movie has an A in my book. An amazing, classic Spike Lee joint. I think Spike Lee always knows how to draw an audience in using comedy, and hits them with very blatant, hard to discuss (but necessary) topics.
The movie is tied together very well. The ending scenes especially paint the picture for viewers to understand the status of America’s racial climate. I don’t think anyone walking into a Spike Lee film should be surprised at the level of honesty that the film tells, or the trueness the actors bring to the film’s characters.
About the Peetimes
This movie had an amazing mix of comedic and serious scenes.
Spike Lee does a great job at distinguishing what scenes are meant for laughter and what scenes are meant for silence.
Though not easy, I was able to get 4 Peetimes throughout the movie.
Watching movies in theaters is an indescribable experience for me. This, doing laundry, and visiting the Container Store bring me true joy. When I’m not watching movies or getting Peetimes, I like keeping up with the latest technology, learning to code, and building things. Career wise, my passion lies with improving access and equity within the health, tech, and social sectors.
