And NY Mag is the shit. This is a great interview with Spike Lee about the making of one of my favorite movies, “Do the Right Thing.” There are a lot of good quotes in here. One that stands out…
Do the Right Thing never won an Oscar.
Remember what Kim Basinger did? Onstage she said, The best film of the year is not even nominated, and it’s Do the Right Thing.” I didn’t even know her. But when Driving Miss Motherfucking Daisy won Best Picture, that hurt … No one’s talking about Driving Miss Daisy now.
He’s the man.
