Spike Lee’s new film is riveting, uneven, ambitious, super violent, and brilliantly acted. The sprawling themes make for a powerful and frustrating viewing experience. Spike and his behind the camera team gives us a unique Vietnam experience. The actors draw you in to an emotionally charged story about previously unheralded Black bravery during the war, father and son relationship, and PTSD. Delroy Lindo is a towering actor who creates film magic during an exceptional monologue soliloquy that will leave you breathless.
