Spike Lee did it - he actually topped the dolly shot from Malcolm X with this one. Also, I broke down at the end of Chi-Raq when Chiraq says 'no' to the contract and walks away, and the mothers in white come out from behind the police line. Can we talk about the best film of 2015?

I loved it too. Even though he HAD to have the white people be buffoons as usual, it's still an incredibly important film. His best since 25th Hour.

>Every Spike Lee film is a piece of agitprop, but few of them are entertaining. His newest, Chi-Raq, fails at both goals. The reasons why are as infuriating as today’s uninformative headlines.

>Lee’s use of Public Enemy’s song “Fight the Power” in Do the Right Thing (1989) made for an entertaining opening scene, but there is nothing comparable in Chi-Raq’s agitprop. From pseudo-Greek choruses to Samuel L. Jackson as a pimp/moderator wearing ice-cream-colored suits; heart-to-heart conversations to song-and-dance numbers; statistics and song lyrics in a pre-credit sequence to text-message frames popping up on screen; plus many, many speeches — Chi-Raq is aesthetic chaos. Lee piles up numerous Brechtian strategies as if to enlighten audiences about the issues at stake in Chicago’s crises, but, as usual, he gets to the bottom of nothing. That’s why white liberal critics respond to Lee’s movies more intently than black moviegoers.

>One scene of flagrant badgering shows John Cusack as a lay priest presiding at the funeral of a child (a victim of gang crossfire); his eulogy becomes a ten-minute diatribe against the National Rifle Association, even though the NRA has nothing to do with gang violence. Lee repeats editorial-page ranting as the essence of his insight. As an African-American artist, he fails to look closely at the grievances that cause unrest among young blacks — the reasons why restless males oppose each other, the urges that cause “ride-or-die” females to also sustain turf battles and ego wars. The Lysistrata device does not penetrate the psychic anxiety and cultural traditions of post-slavery African-American life.
