Call it an unfair advantage. In the U.K. they have BBC 1 and BBC 2 and BBC 3 and BBC 4 and we've got PBS.

I agonized over this for awhile, and actually almost decided not to even write anything about the film; but I eventually reached a compromise.

Oh that Spike! Can't live with him, can't live without him (Or is it can't live with him, can't shoot him?)

So, if you haven't heard already, Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer practically caused shock waves with its debut at Sundance yesterday.  Critics seemed evenly split on whether or not it's a good film.  A word that seems to pop up consistently...polarizing.  Hmmm...we'll just have to wait for Tambay's colorful review.  Until then, check out this conversation he had, along with Dee Rees, with David Carron Sunday afternoon.

They say that there's something of every artist in the work they create, whether a conscious decision or not; and the act of creating with the intent to surrender your creation (and in essence a piece of yourself) to a potentially scrutinizing audience, requires some degree of courage on the part of the artist; but I would further say that it takes a certain amount and kind of bravery to intentionally insert oneself (both literally and figuratively) completely naked (physically and emotionally) into one's work, and then publicly present the completed work to not only family, friends and acquaintances, but also perfect strangers.

So all this talk and discussion we've been having for the last few weeks on S & A about Red Tails I thought it was the right time to go back and repost an item I wrote last year back in June about the first black astronaut in the movies.
