a spike lee joint

i didn't expect much of bamboozled going into it, and i wasn't disappointed. i wouldn't call it a bad film, it's just as subtle as a bag of hammers. there are some great performances (by mos def, jada pinkett-smith, savion glover, and a few others), and the photography is amazing (especially considering much of it was shot on consumer-grade dv cameras). the plot just sort of lurches along, and there were points where i wondered if i had nodded off and missed some scenes that would make it all more coherent. (and spike really needed someone on the commentary track with him to provide a little more fuel for conversation. there are points where the only commentary is him repeating some key lines spoken by one of the characters.)


just thought that might clear up some confusion.

let me say it again:

i am not spike lee. spike lee does not have anything to do with this site. whatever you write here will not be read by spike lee.
