How do you follow up Do the Right Thing? Making your first of many collaborations with Denzel Washington isn’t a bad idea. Mo’ Better Blues reunites Spike Lee with a lot of the Do the Right Thing actors but puts them all in a new vibrant environment. It is the story of a selfish trumpet player trying to be the best of his profession while also juggling the girls he’s cheating on. It’s an examination on what it takes to be a great artist as well as a look at what it takes to control your own fate. Also it’s a movie with awesome music in it.
