The 23 Year Old Spike Lee
28 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the same way that Oscar Micheaux responded to D.W. Griffith's 'The Birth of a Nation' by making films from a black perspective, Spike Lee took up the baton and responded in the same way. This film was a statement to say that he would write, direct and produce his own films just like Micheaux and Griffith respectively.
