Summary
  • Spike Lee is one of the most acclaimed and controversial directors of all time. Now five of his most provocative, thought-provoking films are available in one collection. From the breakout hit dramedy "Do the right thing" to the gritty, urban "Clockers," Lee peels away life's layers, exposing the ironies, brutalities, rhythms and prejudices of the naked city in this powerful collector's set
  • Clockers (1995): a film about the violent world of drug dealing and its 24-hour dealers, known as "clockers."
  • Jungle fever (1991): explores the trials and consequences of interracial romance
  • Do the right thing (1989): a portrait of urban racial tensions and a vibrant look at a day in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
  • Mo' better blues (1990): a film about music and love
  • Crooklyn (1994): The Carmichael family struggles to get by in 1970s Brooklyn
