"...[A] tenaciously gripping film..."
"...[See it for the] bravura sequence set to the tremble and throb of The Who's 1971 anthem BABA O'RILEY....Glee alternates with gloom..." -- Rating: B
"...Furiously enthralling....SUMMER OF SAM is loaded with visual energy..."
"...Energetic, inventive....Lee's hand with actors has never been surer....A truly remarkable achievement..."
"...Lee's feeling for the material, as expressed through his usual visual pyrotechnics, is undeniably effective..."
"...Lee's best films thrum with a wound-up energy, and SUMMER OF SAM vibrates with fear, guilt and lust..."
"...One of Spike's best joints in years. This is confident movie-making..."
- Theatrical release: July 2, 1999.

- Lee trimmed almost two minutes of footage from the film so it could receive an R rating from the MPAA.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Very good movie about the .44 caliber killer, the cast is amazaing, the story line unfold's as the killing's continue. Music is great for those of us who remember the 70's! There is violence and the story line unfold's around a couple and their friend's. The Son of Sam is in the movie and when seen, one can see the descent of his life into the madness which drove him to kill.
