"Chi-Raq" is an upcoming film directed by Spike Lee and written by Lee and Kevin Willmott. Set in Chicago, the film is described as a satire and to have as a subject gang violence prevalent in some neighborhoods on the city's south side, particularly, Englewood.[2] The film is based on Lysistrata, a Greek comedy by Aristophanes."

Spike Lee's films have a tendency to put off a lot of people, some because of politics, some because of his habit of combining esoteric arthouse conventions and techniques with the lowest forms of street culture, alienating fans of both. I have always found his films challenging and interesting, if not always successful. I'm looking forward to CHI-RAQ. The hip-hop vibe mixed with verse dialogue, and the politically charged subject matter will be polarizing, for sure.
