SPIKE LEE

Post by hampsteadclaret » Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:52 pm

I am currently watching the BAFTA'S, not something I normally bother with, award programmes.

Just to say Spike Lee won an award just now for 'Black Klansman'...I saw an excellent interview this morning with Andrew Marr where he was [jokingly] complaining about never winning an award at the BAFTA's...well he has now. I've been a big fan of his since 'She's gotta have it' in the mid-eighties.
Top producer, and director, writer and actor and top bloke. Lee's films have examined race relations, colour in the black community, urban crime and poverty and other political issues. Good to see him get some recognition here...and..he's an Arsenal fan.

You add the “arsenal fan” bit like it’s a good thing?

Not at all, I was just surprised.

Arsenal have a substantial number of 'celebrities' who say they are Arsenal supporters.

Black Klansman was a superb film I thought.

Don't you mean Black Panther? Love Spike Lee. His influence on comics is huge. Spiderman, Avengers, Captain America. Great films. RIP.
