Samuel L. JacksonJungle Fever, Pulp Fiction

Many critics described Jungle Fever, Spike Lee’s exploration of interracial relationships, as extremely uneven. What shined on a stellar level was Samuel L. Jackson’s crack-addicted portrayal of Gator. A tragicomic portrayal of anguish, Jackson cinematically channeled a drug abuser perfectly.
