BLACKkKLANSMAN
« on: May 20, 2018, 02:19:33 am »


Spike Lee's latest collaboration with Jordan Peele, 'BLACKkKLANSMAN' may not have earned the highest Palme d'Or prize at the 71st Festival de Cannes Awards as that honor went to Hirokazu Koreda for 'Shoplifters', but he did recieve a positive 10-minute ovation and the Grand Prize trophy as a consolation prize for his efforts.

"I take this on behalf of the People's Republic of Brooklyn, New York,"  Mr. Lee said as he accepted the coveted award.

Mr. Lee's newest movie is getting a positive reaction in the majority of the reviews I've read in cyberspace.

This is the Spike Lee that I remember ever since I walked into Sunrise Cinema on Sunrise Highway, Long Island, NY to view 'She's Gotta Have It' in the Summer of 1986.

Mr. Lee included a dedication in the film to Ms. Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville by a man driving his car into people protesting white nationalism.

Yeah... :)

'Do The Right Thing' was the first movie I've ever seen Sam Jackson in. 


No... it was either 'School Daze' or 'Raw'....   right, the Eddie Murphy stand-up  movie.  'Raw'.
