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.
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.
