Lee is the provocative director whose pioneering films--from Do the Right Thing and Jungle Fever to Malcolm X--helped transform the face of late twentieth-century America. Since bursting onto the scene in 1986 with the sexually provocative She's Gotta Have It, He has been one of America's most visionary and controversial cinematic figures. With film critic Kaleem Aftab, Lee chronicles his explosive rise to stardom, exploring such important issues as Black Nationalism, Hollywood stereotyping, and the rise of a powerful black middle class. With Lee family interviews and the candid revelations of stars like Halle Berry, Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Laurence Fishburne, Ed Norton, John Turturro, Rosie Perez, and Wesley Snipes, this book is the story of a visionary life in the cinema, telling us as much about Lee as it does about the past two decades of American social history.--From publisher description

She's gotta have it by Spike Lee ( Visual )
42 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Statuesque and charismatic Nola Darling is trying to figure out what she wants in life. She has a good job as a commercial artist and designer, a spacious Brooklyn apartment, and three boyfriends: genteel professional Jamie Overstreet, vain male model Greer Childs, and livewire bike messenger Mars Blackmon. Each of them is far from Nola's ideal man, but each fulfills a different need for her. Between her juggling act--accompanied by total honesty about who and what she's doing--and the childish squabbling of the three men, Lee makes some rather nebulous points about gender relations and the double standard. Primarily, this film announces the arrival of a seriously good filmmaker in the American cinematic firmament
