The Michael Balhaus images looked fantastic projected on my wall. Well made cold war thriller. Kelly McGillis was believable as a 50s woman. Young Jeff Daniels was always sublime, just saw him in Something Wild a few days ago.
This Solemnity of Corpus Christi I'm still thinking of The Passion of Paul, more commonly known as "Da 5 Bloods."
Just as Malcom X arrived in the wake of Rodney King's trials, in the wake of the Los Angeles Uprising of 1992, again Spike Lee has made another masterpiece, equally spiritual and political, at exactly the time it's most needed.

As good as anything Altman ever did.
