Spike Lee will always be one of America's foremost filmmakers; an explosive auteur with a jarring left hook who sizes up society and social issues with Billy Wilder's wit and Old Testament fury.

Perhaps Spike's broadest and most well layered joint.

Well timed for anniversary of white nationalist march in Charlottesville where activist Heather Heyer was killed, Lee doesn't shy away from linking the past and the present this unsubtly and directly, like no other major American filmmaker.
