Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 UpThe flamboyant personality of Spike Lee is documented in this intelligent examination of his life and career. A brief account of his close-knit family is followed by an in-depth analysis of the original style and unique vision of his films, from She's Gotta Have It to Crooklyn. Lee's continued dedication to African American issues and his success as a businessman are also presented. A smattering of black-and-white photos and movie stills enhance the book, which is stronger than Bob Bernotas's Spike Lee (Enslow, 1993). As a resource or good read, Hardy's title is a welcome addition.Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
