Radio Raheem by Peter Roberts
over 10 years ago

The rings on Radio Raheem's fingers are the inspiration for the name of this website. I saw this film when I was a teenager and the message has stuck with me ever since. The other thing I have learned is that when it is ultra hot, stay off the streets. I think I love every character in this film even though they do draw heavily on stereotypes. This film is so well made and has such a strong message I forbid you to not like it. Check out another great Spike Lee joint called 'Clockers'. It's another slice of American ghetto culture but much more realistic an gritty.
