Another Five is in the bag! The guys look back at the five films they covered of Spike Lee’s canon and wonder why he isn’t appreciated as much. They bring up films of his they didn’t cover like When the Levees Broke, Inside Man and his Netflix show She’s Gotta Have It. Then they finish it up with their rankings and the announcement of their next Five.
Shortly after the tragedy of 9/11, Spike Lee made a movie set in the heart of NYC that was not about 9/11. But of course it was. 25th Hour tells the story of one man hours away from going to prison and he tries to have his final moments with all of his friends and family. Based off a great book by a future Game of Thrones showrunner, Lee takes us through the ringer with a brilliant cast of Edward Norton, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rosario Dawson, Barry Pepper, Anna Paquin and Brian Cox.
