Storyline

In 2006, director Spike Lee created an astonishing record of the cataclysmic effects of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans with his epic award-winning documentary, When the Levees Broke. Five years later, Lee returns to New Orleans, to see how the ambitious plans to reinvent the Crescent City were playing out. He finds a patchwork of hope and heartache just as a new disaster unfolds. The four-hour documentary is a continuation of the heart-rending story of destruction and rebirth of America's most unique city. Written by HBO Publicity

Not as good as the first but still good...
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why this has such a low rating on here.

I'm a New Orleans resident, though I wasn't at the time, my fiancé was. We married in 2006. It was devastating for all the people who lived through it.

Yes, there are a few things I don't get. Like why the heck did he put anything about Haiti on there? It only deserved maybe 30 seconds to show that the United States govt had a better and quicker reaction to Haiti than it did to its own people, not 10-15 minutes. Yes, Haiti was worse. But so what. The point is that the US Gvt reaction should have been better toward its own people. This country is supposed to be the greatest nation on earth. It isn't. Its own ideology is its own worst enemy. The whole reason for govt to exist is to deal with situations like what happened in New Orleans but when the govt's hands are tied, people die.

Have to say, I'm more convinced than ever due to this film that placing the whole blame on Bush and his regime is the right thing to do.

I also have to say that it was so emotionally jarring that I had to watch it in two parts and several days apart. Its like being put through the ringer.
