Spike Lee has been one of the most prolific directors ever since he burst onto the scene with 1986 She’s Gotta Have It.  Effortlessly moving from features to shorts to documentaries to television, there is little he cannot do.  However, many still question whether or not Lee deserves to be on the top ten list of greatest directors.  We discuss this and more while exploring his 2001 film A Huey P. Newton Story (as previously covered in our Spike Lee series), a performance film that is adapted from star Roger Guenveur Smith’s one man show about the Black Panther co-founder.  We also take a moment to discuss our short film picks of the week: TV on the Radio’s Nine Types of Light and Randy Yang’s Video.
