ClockersNineteen-year-old 'Strike' Dunham is a small-time street drug dealer for Rodney Little, who wants Strike to kill a former dealer who stole from him. When the guy is found with four bullets in his body, Strike's older brother turns himself in as the killer. Det. Rocco Klein doesn't buy the story, however, and sets out to find the truth, and it seems that all the fingers point toward Strike & Rodney.

Critic Reviews of "Clockers"TIME MagazineSeptember 22, 2008
There is a force and focus in Lee's work, an absence of intellectual posturing and a willingness to let his material speak for itself that he has not achieved before.Chicago ReaderSeptember 22, 2008
The performances are strong, but the spectator often feels adrift in an overly busy intrigue.VarietyJune 09, 2008
A study of the urban dope-dealing culture and its toll on everyone who comes in contact with it, the picture has an insider's feel that is constantly undercut by the filmmaker's impulse to editorialize.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The result is a more sober, mournful and meditative expressionism than you'd expect. That's not to say the film isn't suspenseful, but the director's distaste for the inner city's gun culture is clear to see. Superbly acted.Los Angeles TimesAugust 15, 2002
Helping make these points is as strong a cast as Lee has yet worked with.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Has the strengths of Spike Lee's best work without the preachiness and gimmicky camera moves of his weakest.FlavorwireAugust 16, 2016
There's no denying the movie's greatness: the depth of the characters, the urgency of its narrative, the nightmarishness of its vision.The Moving Picture ShowJuly 18, 2014
Clockers leaves you with a sense of aching sadness, a regretful melancholy for the lives that have been blasted and the wrong decisions that have been made. Once again, Spike Lee has done the right thing.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
Spike Lee brings way too much baggage for the movie to work.TV GuideSeptember 22, 2008
Lee's film never recaptures the impact of the opening credit sequence, a grimly deglamorized tableaux of real-life crime scenes.Empire MagazineSeptember 22, 2008
Average Lee, but still enjoyable overall.Film4September 22, 2008
Arguably Lee's best film since Do The Right Thing.
