And that's the double truth, Ruth

A brief but interesting interview with Spike Lee in New York, about Do the Right Thing's 20th (!) anniversary.

Given the political media focus on race in the last month or so, the movie could be released this week with no problem (and Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" remains as urgent and powerful as it was 20 years ago)...

Digg my article

That's a really good interview. It's interesting now, it's so true when he says Bed-Stuy is too expensive. Also, I didn't pick up on the anti-Koch sentiment (dump koch, vote vote vote). That's pretty cool of him to get that in like that

Yeah, definitely didn't initially pick up on that stuff in the movie.
