Flipper (Wesley Snipes) is a successful, married architect. Angie (Annabella Sciorra) is a temporary office worker. When they meet, it's Jungle Fever. Director Spike Lee vividly explores the gray area between love and sex and the other distractions that bifurcate blacks and whites. Samuel L. Jackson picked up Cannes Film Festival and New York Film Critics awards for his powerful portrayal of Snipes's crack-addicted brother.
