Happy 55th birthday to Spike Lee! My favorite films of his are the classic, provactively brilliant, and Shakespearianly epic Do The Right Thing, and the lesser regarded, but I think no less important Bamboozled. Thanks Tim Grierson and Indiewire for giving me the heads up on Lee’s birthday and this video clip celebrating the film.
It’s not a shot, but because today’s Lee’s birthday, we’ll make an exception. (I still plan pulling a shot or two from this film.) Have a look at this time capsule, which is still as relevant as ever. Happy birthday, Mr. Lee, may there be many more of your films to come.
