spike isn't that consistent, i can find something to like in just about all of his work (even stuff like Bamboozled) but never a whole film (even in his best!)
Spike's made some crap. But it's a real tie between Meantime and Do The Right Thing for me.
Spike has involved himself in far too much nonsense down the years. On the other hand, I think I probably rate Do the Right Thing higher than any of Mike Leigh's films.
hour is one of my fave films of all time! The first time i watched it i was blown away. For that i have to say spike....and also because i met him in the NBA store in Manhattan and he was pretty cool
Spike Lee is like a black Oliver Stone with homophobic undertones.

Spike's good, but Mike's more sensitive and revealing and less right-on all the time.
Spike roots for the NY Knicks basketball. Bleck! In fact, I may start an "I Hate NY" thread.
