“A terrific movie: jolting, savage, horrifically funny, nightmarishly exciting but also brainy and compassionate.” – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Spike Lee’s electrifying take on the “Son of Sam” murders in NYC during the summer of 1977 centers on the residents of a Bronx neighborhood who live in fear and distrust of one another. The heat is soaring to record highs, blackouts are filling the streets with looters … and the murders of a man who calls himself the Son of Sam are gripping the “city that never sleeps” in fear. As friends in the small community become obsessed with the idea that the Son of Sam is someone nearby, the madman’s fearsome plague of terror becomes the catalyst that prompts relationships to fall apart and trust to disintegrate into dread.  Featuring an all-star cast including John Leguizamo, Adrien Brody, Mira Sorvino, Jennifer Esposito, Michael Rispoli, Bebe Neuwirth, Patti LuPone, Mike Starr, Anthony LaPaglia and Ben Gazzara, and featuring an amazing soundtrack loaded with vintage hits of the ’70s, Summer of Sam focuses not on the crime spree itself, but rather its effect on those who lived through it, offering a joltingly unique look at an infamous moment in NYC history as seen through the eyes of one of contemporary cinema’s greatest filmmakers.  (Dir. by Spike Lee, 1999, USA, 132 mins., Rated R)
