I don’t like a lot of artists’ personal beliefs. Regardless of his personality, Lee’s ‘25 Hour’ is one of the best American films of the decade. Poignant and one of the first films to deal with the immediate post 9/11 mood.

One of two great films to be made in the neighborhood where I once lived (along with "Saturday Night Fever").

Lee has done some great work (25th Hour, Crooklyn, Do The Right Thing) some mediocre work (Malcolm X, Clockers) and some G-D awful work (Girl Six, Miracle at Santa Anna). Count me in also as someone who like "Bamboozled," which showed white liberal showbiz types for the racial hypocrites they truly are.
