In the scene right after Jacob leaves the bathroom, he is seen motionless with the the background slowly panning out. Spike Lee often places actors on dollies to achieve this effect. See more »
Naturelle's Puerto-Rican-flag leg tattoo, discussed and obvious in the bath, is absent in the stoop scene which would have taken place just a few months later. See more »
Honestly it's the best movie I've seen in my 25 years. I've seen it a dozen times now, and I love it more every time. The plot is perfect, the acting is perfect, the cinematography is perfect. The ending segment with Monty and his father is about the most powerful I've ever seen.
So many unforgettable scenes in the movie:
Frank & Monty at the club the last night
The "make me ugly" scene
Monty and his dad in the car
If you haven't seen it, go get it right now. You can't miss this one.
