I really like Spike Lee’s Crooklyn. Think I’ll watch it again this afternoon.
"It really wasn’t my intent to make a film that reminisced about this grand old time back in the 1970’s," he said. "I just wanted to tell the story of this young girl who was coming of age during that time. And also to show an African-American family that was not dysfunctional; that was headed by two parents. The mother and the father were there and none of the children were on drugs or rapists or murderers, whatever. And despite the fact there’s a lot of conflict amongst the siblings, there’s a great amount of love in this family for each other." — Spike Lee
