Pull Out the VHS: Best Black Films of the ’90s PART II

- By

Crooklyn (1996)

It’s a heartwarming Spike Lee Joint that I have to say has been overlooked, and a pretty funny movie as well.  Taking place in the ’70s in Brooklyn, we follow the semi-autobiography of a school teacher, her husband, and their five interesting children. As I watch how the children interact with one another it reminds me of how I was brought up as a child, not wanting to eat my vegetables, arguing with my sister over the dumbest things, dancing to “Soul Train,” and basically being a kid. Plus, the collection of music used in the film will have anybody jamming.
