Director Carl Franklin followed the success of 1992’s break-out thriller One False Move with his most notable work to date, Devil in a Blue Dress (1995), a Los Angeles neo noir recuperating post-war racial tensions within the confines of the divisive city, filtered through a glop of familiar genre motifs and superb command of tone and mood. Starring Denzel Washington and based on a novel by Walter Mosley, the box office failings of the film curbed additional adaptations of the author’s work featuring reluctant private eye Easy Rawlins. Twenty years after its premiere, the film has maintained an unprecedented level of critical acclaim assisting its sterling reputation. As far as noir goes, we’ve seen this sort of narrative before, a beautiful woman with particularly damning information and labyrinthine connections involved in a dangerous mixture of sex and politics, but never from the perspective of a black private eye in a viciously segregated America. »

It’s one thing that Spike Lee has been making feature films for over three decades, with no sign of slowing down, but his achievement is even more remarkable when you consider just how diverse his body of work truly is. Beyond features, he’s made documentaries, TV shows, music videos, and even made an impact in the advertising world (his run of Nike ads with Michael Jordan were game-changing). However, one honor has eluded him all these years: an Oscar. Nominated for Best Original Screenplay for “Do The Right Thing” and Best Documentary for “4 Little Girls,” Lee finally took home a gold statue with an Honorary Oscar, awarded over the weekend. Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, and Wesley Snipes feted Lee, who then gave an 18-minute speech recounting his career, films, and much more.

"The industry is so behind, it's ridiculous," said Spike Lee, accepting an honorary Oscar at the annual governors' awards dinner in Los Angeles. "We need to have some serious discussions about diversity and get some flavour up in this."
He was referring, he explained, to a situation in which it's easier for a black person to become president of the Us than rise to the top of a film or TV studio. Walking through studio offices, he said, the only black people he would see would be checking names at the door.
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who hosted the event, agreed that there is a problem and said the industry has just started »
