SPIKE LEE

I find more poetry, comedy, tragedy, empathy and insight into the human condition in any one scene of, say, Charles Burnett's sadly underrated "To Sleep With Anger" than Lee's entire body of work. But I suppose an artist like Burnett, who lacks Lee's celebrated hype-worthiness, is inevitably of limited interest to the mainstream press.
