Directed by Spike Lee
From Spike Lee, the legendary director of Do the Right Thing, Mo’ Better Blues, Jungle Fever, Inside Man and BlacKkKlansman, comes this classic crime-drama based on a book by Richard Price (The Wanderers), who co-wrote the screenplay with Lee. A “clocker” is a 24-hour drug dealer, and Strike (Mekhi Phifer) is the hardest-working one on the streets. But for Strike, time is running out. When the local drug kingpin tips Strike off about an opportunity for advancement, a rival dealer ends up dead, and Strike suddenly finds himself caught between two homicide detectives. One is Mazilli (John Turturro), who’s only looking for an easy bust. The other is Rocco (Harvey Keitel), who’s looking for something much harder to find—the truth—and when Strike’s law-abiding brother confesses to the murder, Rocco vows not to rest until he’s sure the real shooter is behind bars. Gritty and stunning on-location NYC cinematography by Malik Hassan Sayeed (He Got Game, Belly) with top-notch performances by Delroy Lindo, Keith David, Isaiah Washington, Regina Taylor and Michael Imperioli.
