Jungle Fever ★★★½

A dark film that presents in equal measure humour, pain and love. All are of the accepted normalcy of the players in this twisted quest for answers that aren’t possible to find in the two hour run time. Stevie Wonder sets the mood for the film with songs that present fractured tapestry of sounds that feature iconic skits from his albums. While this film presents more questions than answers of as to how one could grow beyond the clutches of a firmly rooted family system built off of ethnic ideologies, it starts a conversation that continues to this day.
