Spike Lee

BAMBOOZLED (2000, Lee)

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.
