Prompted by the brutal Howard Beach killing of a young black man, Lee's politically charged drama is an angry assault on racism that benefits from bravura filmmaking. Still Lee's best and most important film.
A subtle and humane entertainment with a refreshingly serious view of the world. There are no absolute heroes or villains. There are no easy answers to the questions that this film poses with such artistry and grace.
The movie confronts racism head-on, with the kind of clear-eyed and unflinching attitude that is rarely seen in major motion pictures. Lee does not pander to political correctness, nor does he sermonize.
