So many people missed this story when it went to theaters. I saw it then and I have seen it two more times!The true story of a serial killer is wound around the so right on with the fear it brought and the blame for the killings is wrongly surmised that the killings were done by one of the neighborhood's group of young adults. All the prejudice spins out of control as the story shows the case of the killer is affecting people's fear and actions.It continues with side by side moments where real tv reports and newspaper headlines makes the people of the neighborhood where this occurs are run, with short snips of tthe actual psychotic murderer slips out into the night and randomly attacks couples sitting in cars talking after fun nights of partying in the disco scene or punk music performances in small concerts begins to start the "punk" scene in NYC.
Flashbacks of the killer in his tormented pain with irrational thoughts in between music dancing and lines at CBGB's to get in for a punk band to play, all swirl to come together as the detectives are getting closer and the neighborhood "punk" rocker,comes out with typical punk garb and a new mohawk. This film shows underlying prejudices and hate that the fear and anxiety and unfair accusations actually bring out as wrongful and dangerous assumptions as people suspect others in their neighborhood that stand out because they are different .As the police messages from the murderer, tension rises within the whole community, and then through NYC's burroughs because of the horrific murders. As the music keeps playing between the punk concert and the disco dancing, paranoia sets in and some as sort of wonder if certain people are the serial killer and it becomes so strong that it is decided who the murderer is. The prejudices, the unfair assumptions, the homophobia, the drugs, the disrespect and taking advantage of women,the club music and dancing, the ignorance and sad mistakes and the way the whole series of events in this film; all tie together to display a true portrait of NYC neighborhoods in the end of the1970's. Finally, the killer is caught making relief the largest emotion. As people started to carry on and think that once again things are normal-that it is over, they start to realize that foolishness, anger and blame on close friends has caused broken faith and a realization that because of ignorance, because of how friends and family were treated wrongly, their lives will never be the same. That just like the much bigger thing of murdering others, mending relationships and building trust again may just never come true.
This film was great, Spike Lee got the whole situation down pat. Blending the major psychotic true story, along with news flashes from the time, along with the people that try to go back to before and put their lives back together.
The story shows how these serial murders have changed things and some may not ever gain back the love or the close friendships that were there before the first gunshot.
