Editorial Reviews

The latest in Spike Lee's Chronicles of Brooklyn series (which also include SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT, DO THE RIGHT THING, CROOKLYN, CLOCKERS, and HE GOT GAME), RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster—until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.

    I remember a day when a Spike Lee movie would come out and critics would fall all over themselves to talk about what a genius he was. I would see these same movies and think they were well made and interesting but nothing near as special as they seemed to think they were. Then things began to change. Lee's new movies weren't getting near the attention his earlier works did and he became known more for his outrageous comments than his films. If he continues to make movies like this I can see that continuing.

    REDHOOK SUMMER takes place in the now familiar Lee territory of Redhook, Brooklyn. Young Flick is forced by his mother to arrive in Redhook to spend the summer with his religious grandfather Enoch, a pastor of a church there. Coming from a middle class home where he has his own food and non-stop use of his Ipad 2, Flick grumbles about wanting to go home and hates the situation he's in.

    Enoch doesn't cow tow to the boy and makes the food he normally does. He also has Flick work for him in the church, taking care of the building and handing out pamphlets. It is at the church that Flick makes his only new friend, a young girl named Chazz who takes no guff from Flick and who speaks her mind frequently.

    Flick seems like the most naive character on the face of the Earth. Walking around the tough neighborhood of Brooklyn he flaunts his Ipad constantly never fearing that it will be stolen from him. When he meets the gang on the street, The Bloods, he doesn't flinch or act like he might be in any jeopardy while his grandfather gives them their space. He might try to convince them to change their ways and accept God but he knows better than to push their buttons.

    If you are a spike lee fan, I highly recommend you view this movie. Red Hook summer is an underrated movie, just as many other independent films are today. This is a thought provoking movie based on belief systems, youth, poverty and growing up.

    An underrated Spike Lee gem, which had a very limited release late in Summer 2012. This is one worth checking out. The acting of Clarke Peters really stands out in the lead role. Even Spike himself recreates one of his most memorable movies role, that of Mookie from Do The Right Thing, who continues to deliver pizza for Sal's Famous Pizzeria in Brooklyn. Also back from an earlier Spike Lee joint: Tracy Camilla Johns, who reprises her earlier role as Nola Darling, the female protagonist from She's Gotta Have it, albeit in a quite different way here.

    Spike Lee as a Director is once in a lifetime good. He can figure out ways to make so many unacceptable things work on film I stand by that to my grave. Hitchcock could do that. And Fritz Lang. And Sergio Leone. And Kurosawa. I'm officially out of comparable superlatives.

    Spike at his best has ALWAYS represented the alienated and disenfranchised young outcasts of society as the most undervalued wonderful human beings in every single movie of his that I've seen. And for all of Red Hook Summer's flaws, he's still getting that done.

    Nothing fancy here. A whole LOT of Christian bashing & offensively bad behavior from white Condo owning invaders are really the action highlights. There's no hit pop singles to be found either. Just really interesting character development in Brooklyn as it goes through awkward gentrification.

    The generation gap is so well documented here it's a Spike Lee movie for grandma to say, "SEE kid! I KNOW your frustrations!" And that ain't bad at all.
