Aroview: Spike Lee's tour-de-force of racial friction and personal politics, forged his status as the most important black director in history. Not a 'comedy', but it does have many funny moments before the controversial finale.

4 stars (Very Good) This racially-charged drama takes place during one of the hottest days of a Brooklyn suburb, the frustrations of ordinary people threatening to erupt into something far more serious...~Tom H
4 stars (Very Good) Centred around Sal's Famous Pizzaria, as the sweltering summer heat rises, tensions build to boiling point on the streets of Brooklyn between local blacks, whites, and foreigners. Controversial and courageous for it's time.~GenXGirl
2 stars (Good Try) It opens with a terrific solo dance number but what follows is unable to better it. The film is made for the right reasons and contains some good segments and it should be seen by everyone as part of their film experience but it is not my cup of tea.~tubbs
