Movie Moles: Summer of Sam

program date: 
Mon, 06/25/2012

 Denise Morris and Iven Hale review Spike Lee's 1999 film, "Summer of Sam"---an anti-summer-blockbuster about a summer. Summer of Sam is a fictionalized history of the summer of 1977 when New York City was rocked by serial murders at the hand of David Burkowitz - a.k.a. the 44-caliber killer or son of Sam. Iven and Denise consider its themes of xenophobia, its fascination with trauma, cultural hy steria, Lee's use of the contained community to explore moral quandries, and the characterization of women.
