spikeI think I love Spike Lee. First he comes out as a soccer fan, and now he's taking Hollywood to task for making awful movies. At the Venice Film Festival supporting All the Invisible Children, which he co-directed, Lee was asked about the massive slump that has the American film industry in such a panic. Instead of talking about DVD releases, advertising costs, or fickle viewers, he put the blame squarely at the feet of filmmakers, accusing them of a total lack of originality. "I'm not naming any individual films but it's the worst it's ever been. It's full of sequels and remakes of TV shows." Remember when Spike was the enfant terrible, accused of inciting riots and creating race problems? Now he seems like the only major filmmaker with any brains.
