Bamboozled

Deserves to be recognized as one of the most disturbing films ever made. Painful pasts refracted by the digital world, a razor sharp reminder of the increasing separation of images from their meanings taken to the absolute extreme. It’s satire paired down to the absolute raw materials, stripping away all unnecessary niceties and bullshit and focusing only on saying what needs to be said, no matter how it is perceived. The movie is so tightly packed with themes and commentary that in many ways it seems like the Rosetta Stone of Spike Lee’s work; a filmic manifesto on all of the things he cares about.
