Spike Lee has a new film out now, Red Hook Summer. The reviews at Rotten Tomatoes are split. Generally I got the impression that it was a rushed, low budget production, and that these aspects of it affected its quality. I think it will still be worth seeing, even if it isn’t his best.
Speaking of his best, this article, When Spike Lee Became Scary – Jason Bailey – The Atlantic, has a great retrospect of one of Lee’s finest films, if not the finest: Do The Right Thing. It’s a great essay not only for it’s analysis of the film, but of the reaction to the film and Lee in general. It made me want to see out and see it again.
