Everybody knows that Spike Lee is an important filmmaker, but do they realize how good he is with actors, and how innovative he is with style?

From the opening credits sequence, showing two beams of blue light where the World Trade Center once stood, to the closing moments, which evoke the dream of the wide-open road, Lee takes the spiritual moment and crystallizes it into art.

Lee sets these relationships against a city battered by the events of September 11th. Francis’ apartment looks out on Ground Zero, and the gifted cinematographer Rodriego Prieto (8 Mile, Amores Perros) catches an atmosphere that crackles with tension.

As always in Lee’s collaborations with composer Terence Blanchard, music is used under almost every scene, sometimes to rather bombastic effect.
