Spike Lee's take on the "Son of Sam" murders in New York City during the summer of 1977 centering on the residents of an Italian-American Northeast Bronx neighborhood who live in fear and distrust of one another.
This Spike Lee film examines the life of an aspiring actress in New York. She is upset by the treatment of women in the movie industry during one of her screen tests with 'QT'. Out of work and desperate for money, she decides to take a job as a phone-sex operator. Here, unlike her previous dealings with potential employers, her (female) boss is kind, caring, and sensitive. Later, she begins to get too engrossed in her work and starts to lose touch with reality, represented by her friend and neighbor, Jimmy.Written by

The monologue that Lovely reads and the camera angles in the scene where Lovely and Jimmy are in his apartment talking about acting are taken from She's Gotta Have It (1986), also directed by Spike Lee. See more »

What a boring movie!! Another Spike Lee movie, about, (gasp) Spike Lee. The best moment, I thought was played by Maggie Rush-Miller as quirkie Girl #42 and her memorable monologue/accent! She is such an amazing actress
