Jungle Fever Reviews
With more analysis, I think that Jungle Fever was intended by director Spike Lee as a cautionary tale, especially for black men. What happens when you do drugs? Nothing good. What happens when a successful working class black man cheats on his wife with his white secretary? He loses his wife, his home, and his kids.
What happens when the successful black white collar employee thinks he is secure enough he can tell his boss he quits, without a new job in place?
A successful married black man in Jungle Fever has a lot to lose.
In spite of this seeming to be a cautionary tale, the response was possibly not as intended. Instead of discouraging interracial dating this may have encouraged it.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I think society in general is more accepting of interracial relationships than it was when Spike Lee was growing up. There are a lot of places in America where you no longer have to worry about your family and friends going crazy because you are dating someone of a different race or ethnicity. There is definitely more of a live and let live attitude, although racial prejudice is probably not going to completely die out anytime soon.
Bad sound mix too - the scenes with music and dialogue suffer, as the dialogue is almost inaudible!
