On Death and Patriarchy in Crooklyn (3099 words)
Crooklyn is most compelling when it represents images of fl subjectivity rarely seen in mainstream cinema, images that both counter racist stereotypes as well as facile notions of positive images of "the fl family." The property owning, artistic, progressive fl family portrayed in the film in no way represent the conventional fl bourgeoisie.
Crooklyn constructs a redemptive narrative for fl life where the subjugation of the fl female body is celebrated as that rite of passage which is restorative, which ensures family survival.
Death and dying are merely a sub-text in Crooklyn, a diversionary ploy that creates a passive emotional backdrop onto which Lee imposes a vision of fl family that is fundamentally conservative and in no way in opposition to the beliefs and values of white mainstream culture.
