Spike Lee : Coward
“American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them,” Spike Lee on Django Unchained.
Django Unchained is a fantastic piece of cinema. Through the pre- Civil War backdrop narrative Tarantino mask a love story in slavery times. Brilliant film. Spike Lee’s a great filmaker himself at times. But on his criticism of a film he hasn’t seen and his negative remarks strike me as petty jealously. Jaime Foxx gains a new respect as an American actor, epic performances all around. Mr. Lee comes off as a true hater.
