Summer of Sam

* *

Spike Lee directs this Bronx drama set during the Son of Sam murders. A mob in the Bronx believes a young man (Adrien Brody) is actually the serial killer. John Leguizamo, Anthony LaPaglia, Mira Sorvino, Jennifer Esposito, John Savage, Bebe Neuwirth, Michael Badalucco, Michael Rispoli, Ben Gazzara and Patti LuPone star.

Capsule review: An intriguing cast, and a vibrant neighborhood portrait. However, the film never feels consistent. The action feels like it is all building towards a distinct goal...then just dissipates. Ultimately disappointing.

[R - strong graphic violence and sexuality, pervasive strong language and drug use] (Touchstone)
