Spike Lee essential films for aspiring directors.


Some dubious choices from the list. No Silents represented, nor many foreign classics, while Mel Gibson somehow gets to occupied a spot on Spike list. The list also just strikes me as little too bland, at least for my own particular idiosyncratic taste.

First, there are too many on his list. After four or five, particularly if its off the cuff, it becomes a list of one's preferences and tastes rather rather than a strictly considered sample.

With the operative words being aspiring directors three films came immediately to mind and I wondered if Spike had them on his list. Only one: Rashomon.

Not surprising that he left out many of his very successful contemporaries.

This is just a quick note to thank Dark Imbecile for doing a great job in the big task of tidying up, removing dead links, updating Spike Lee's filmography and adding forum and web resources to the first post!
