The importance of their work goes completely overlooked. Even people who respect Spike Lee misunderstand his masterpiece [i]Bamboozled[/i], and not enough people know the work of Marlon Riggs!
A good place to start with Riggs is right here with [i]Color Adjustment[/i]. Watching it alongside [i]Bamboozled[/i] (not literally side by side) should offer any viewer a completely satisfying experience. I have no idea why nobody likes [i]Bamboozled[/i]. It baffles me.
I have seen both of these films a couple times. I just had to go back to them recently to write my own paper on the representations of black people in the media. I called it "From Postcards to Primetime." I also gave an 85-minute presentation on it. I showed clips from [i]The Birth of a Nation, Color Adjustment[/i] (the segment on "Amos 'n' Andy"), "I Spy," and [i]Bamboozled[/i] (the montage at the end INCLUDING the quote by James Baldwin).
