#693: BlacKkKlansman / Top 5 Spike Lee Shots


Master filmmaker, trickster, provocateur, Spike Lee has been making bold and timely films for over three decades now. And with his latest, BLACKkKLANSMAN, he's also made one of his best. On this week's show, Adam and Josh give Lee the career retrospective treatment with the Filmspotting Top 5: Spike Lee Shots, along with a review of the outstanding and thought-provoking KLANSMAN. Plus, a special wish-fulfillment edition of Massacre Theatre and some listener feedback on episode 689's Top 5 Struggling Movie Adolescents.  

This episode of Filmspotting is presented by Miller Lite, Crazy Enough to Work PodcastSquarespace (code FILM), and Masterclass.
