Some filmmakers interpret the past. Some capture the present. Spike Lee does both, and he sees the future. There has never been a more urgent moment for the director’s work: In this episode, we spotlight a 2019 conversation with Wesley Morris about Do the Right Thing (9:53), interview Lee’s longtime composer Terence Blanchard (35:32), and revisit a conversation with Lee’s editor Barry Alexander Brown (65:01). Plus: Sean shares his top five (OK, top six) favorite Spike Lee movies.
