    He鈥檚 not just done good work
    He鈥檚 done masterful work multiple times
    his mid movies don鈥檛 take away from his masterpieces
    U can try but nothing will take away from the greatness spike lee has done did black film

    She鈥檚 Gotta Have It
    Mo Better Blues
    Jungle Fever
    Crooklyn
    Get on the Bus
    4 Little Girls (one of the more memorable documentaries I鈥檝e seen, especially w regard to the way the camera captures the interviewees鈥 faces)
    Bamboozled (one of the century鈥檚 best so far)

    His 90s run is phenomenal

    those are just my personal favorites鈥 Clockers n Sun of Sam are cool too. And I don鈥檛 love 25th Hour like others (sorta weird bc it鈥檚 one of his most acclaimed but it鈥檚 not really my thing) but idk how anyone鈥檚 calling him mid if they鈥檝e actually seen any of the above.

  • School Daze & Da Sweet Blood are my two least favs, but everything else I鈥檝e seen has been at least alright鈥 even the (I think) much maligned Girl 6 + She Hate Me. Spike has so many lowballed films that are actually good af when given the chance. He def could use a little more quality control, but still is talented enough to make sorta crappy s*** like Chiraq still interesting on some level. Most of his disappointing s*** is def post-Bamboozled (his last Great film arguably the best imo)

    Was kinda hoping this thread would do better. Same with the Cameron one from last week. The next couple of weeks i might try to chose less acclaimed but more divisive directors.
