Shirley was a piano prodigy of Jamaican descent who had mastered much of the standard concert repertory by age American buddy comedies have generally mandated equal screen time to both characters — except when one of those characters is black, and exists almost entirely to help transform his white companion on a quest toward salvation. His ultimate function is to help the white protagonist overcome some major character flaw. But who does Shirley write to while on the road?
I wasn't trying to imply that they're mythical. The horrible villain is us, the present. I don't think movie critiques are a great use of his activist or creative energies but, I guess it's his life.
The question is- what story do the changes tell? What are you changing that world to say? It's not like he's criticizing the cinematography, he's criticizing the institution of the police by way of Lee's portrayal.
One might disagree with his reading of the film - I haven't seen it - but the point Riley is making couldn't be more appropriate from the standpoint of his activist energies. Love Boots Riley and hope he continues on. And Spike Lee has been complicated and troubling for a long time luv to advertise for Nike 4evabut the whole movie industry sucks and is incredibly regressive and I just think going on a one man Twitter campaign against this one movie is, not a choice I would make.
And as he's someone who has done his share of in person organizing I'm kind of surprised. Anyhow, it's his choice. I think that this is not a tenable position.
I think his critiques of Blackkklansman make sense. I think his choice to focus his energy on the problematic aspects of that film, especially in the shitty environment of Twitter, while at the same time, steadfastly refusing to acknowledge valid critiques of the sexist aspects of his own film, looks bad on him.
But again, no problem if we have different opinions on this. I don't rate the struggle for women's rights over or under the struggle to end state violence or the racist police state.
These are overlapping struggles, and in other contexts Riley has spoken up against both. In your words he's not anti-women's-rights in general. But in this case it's important to put this out and shut him down? Which is a choice you can make but I might suggest against it.- Analysis of the Spike Lee's Movie Do the Right Thing For my shot analysis I chose a shot from the Spike Lee Movie Do the Right Thing.
