Chi-Raq ★★★★

Spike Lee sure wasn't fucking around with this one. He goes straight to the jugular of the issue and rips our society a new one. It took me a bit to settle into its Hip Hop rhyming dialogue, but once the satire become readily apparent, I was all in. At times funny, shocking, and painfully emotional, I can safely say that this is one unique, must see beast of a motion picture. The powerhouse ending to this got my tear ducts flowing something fierce. We all need to wake up and realize we are all in this life together. And that Spike Lee when miffed, channels cinema into something potent, informative, and thrillingly alive.
