Lee doesn't reinvent the wheel when it comes to filming live theater, but he moves the camera artfully and edits with an energy that matches the music. And he makes good use of close-ups, capturing the sweaty faces of a troupe of remarkable performers.

You'll probably have to resist the urge to stand up and cheer with the onscreen audience during the emotional curtain call.

Spike Lee's Passing Strange: The Movie is basically canned musical theater, but this is one Tony-winning Broadway show that's well worth preserving and seeing.

The invigorating result, zestily edited by Lee's own inside iron man, Barry Brown, is in every way a knockout.

Like Lee, the artist formerly known as Mark Stewart possesses a powerful and singular voice, one he uses to express vividly his own unique experience of growing up as a black man in America.

Rousing, devastating, invigorating, painful, joyful, soulful -- all those adjectives don't even begin to describe Passing Strange, but it's a start.

Passing Strange conjures a rare kind of theatrical magic with its emotionally raw, frequently euphoric portrait of the artist as a young man.

The cutting is hyperkinetic, yet Lee is always in synch with the cast's phenomenal energy. He's in their thrall -- and so are we.
