Summer of Sam

Directed by Spike Lee

In the summer of 1977, New York city residents were living in fear of the serial killer known as ‘Son of Sam’. Against this backdrop Spike Lee sets one of his most provocative films yet. A group of residents from an Italian-American neighbourhood worry that one of their number might be the killer. Meanwhile a local Mafia boss ups the ante by offering a bounty for capturing the killer.
