Crooklyn ★★★★

DA 12 DAYS OF SPIKE: DAY 6

Definitely feels like the least "Spike" joint I've seen, but his usual tricks are no strangers here. Where Spike usually prefers a strict adherence to structure, no matter how zany and unidentifiable said structure is, Crooklyn is a downright Bed-Stuy hangout movie, meandering around the block and the typical tensions, Spike Lee style. No complaints here.
