Lee tackles the subject of interracial romance from the unavoidable vantage point that, while things today are more open, they are also considerably more volatile and complex.

There are so many voices you may think you're swimming through a maelstrom, but thanks to Lee it's all superbly orchestrated.

Instead of showing how prejudice seeps into the private intimacies of daily life, the film turns its attention to the other characters.

Brilliant when it examines the people who surround his feverish couple, but uncertain when it comes to the lovers themselves.

The result, for the most part, is a provocative, quintessentially Spike symphony.
