I love this movie even though Spike Lee shot it in a weird way (as in the cameras he used don’t give that “movie” look) but this is classic and forever relevant
i bought this and pull it out every now and again to remind myself that certain are still the same. The Minstrel Show goes on!
I highly recommend this movie!
love the way YouTube is showing full length films
this film is worth watching.
Good stuff! The Spike Lee Boxset I have doesn’t include this – glad it’s on Youtube now!
THE UNFORTUNUATE TRUTH!!
I REMEMBER MY FIRST TIME SEEING THIS AT THE MOVIES….LOVED IT!!!! STILL LOVE IT!! BUT THINGS ARE STILL THE SAME…
Thanks for the post love this film, haven’t watched it for a while so I’m gonna check it again
