Looks like I'm going to have to rest con 90 percent of this series after the original trilogy.
That reuniting scene at the end tho..... actual tears.
A spectacle, while sometimes too over stylised Spike Lee's impressive true story pulls no punches and is a thrill from start to finish. A film with engrossing narrative backed by some powerful language and imagery.
That first scene and that last scene though.... this film is brilliant at making us take a deeper look at our own culture.
AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT THAT SOUNDTRACK
What a truly humbling experience viewing this masterpiece was a timeless tale of man vs nature and the eternal struggle of peace.
This is a film which brings issues that have existed in the world from the dawn of man kind to front and centre stage. The soundtrack and directing are incredible and the Animation revolutionary for its time
This movie truly is one of my favorite film experiences ever!!
