The war in this film is waged by black men upon other black men. Set in present-day Chicago, with a nod to the ancient Greek play Lysistrata, the combatants are rival gangs who use violence to control their respective hoods. Their women decide to end the bloodshed by refusing to have sex, leaving the men desperate and tumescent. Written in verse, with exuberant set pieces and musical numbers, the film is by turns fiercely funny and deadly sincere.
"The laughs in Spike Lees corrosive Chi-Raq burn like acid. Urgent, surreal, furious, funny and wildly messy, the movie sounds like an invitation to defeat, but its an improbable triumph that finds Mr. Lee doing his best work in years. . ." Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
