Lee seems to confuse noise with drama: the bickering Carmichaels create quite a racket, but we're seldom moved by their plight. In his most desperate moment, Lee shoots a long sequence through a distorted lens.

The key problem is that the film is simply a ragged series of anecdotal sketches.

An ambitious failure from Spike Lee.
