It's a movie that's so personal, naked and vulnerable that you can understand why some of its humor seems rough, some of its visuals excessive. But Crooklyn has a quality not as obvious in any Lee film since Do the Right Thing: the sense of a whole world opening, rich and real, before your eyes. [13 May 1994, p.A]
This remarkable movie will haunt you for a good long time.
Crooklyn is not in any way an angry film. But thinking about the difference between its world and ours can make you angry, and I think that was one of Lee's purposes here.
