Yesterday, the trailer for Spike Lee’s latest cinematic project CHI-RAQ was released to the world. The buzz for the latest Spike Lee urban adaptation of the Greek play Lysistrata began some time before the start of production in 2015. It safe to say that some people were concerned about what this movie would be about given the current climate of Chicago and whether or not the movie is making light of the situation in Chi-Town right now. While I understand the apprehensiveness to the film, I can’t really say whether or not Spike is taking advantage for the situation in order to complete a film. Judging from the trailer, I don’t think that’s the case. I look forward to seeing the movie.
