Jungle Fever (1991)

An American romance drama written, directed and produced by Spike Lee, starring Wesley Snipes, Samuel L. Jackson, John Turturro, Frank Vincent and Anthony Quinn.
Everyone has problems when black people get into romantic relationships with Italians.
Spike Lee is one of the most discriminatory racists that ever lived. In many films, you could substitute a black character for a white one (or the other way around) without disrupting the plot very much. Not in Spike's movies. The premise was simple, but the plot became very complex. There were too many characters that were not part of the main story. The video was all very good, but the audio had some issues. Music and dialogue sometimes clashed into a cacophony of noise. He used the same "gliding down the street" type of scene as in Malcolm X and I think that it was done with a green screen composite. Overall, not good and not bad. I rate it o.k.
