Spike Lee’s films have always been on the cutting edge of social commentary. Finally, it’s starting to look like people are woke enough to stop hating and start watching. From the start, Lee was a visionary and expert filmmaker. His movie, Do the Right Thing, which many would consider his best, has aged with grace and is more poignant and relevant than ever. With his latest film, BlacKkKlansman, winning the Grand Prix at Cannes this year, it shows that he’s still making films that are not only cinematic but conscientious as well.
