It has been well over a decade since I have seen this movie, in what was my first and will be my only time. One of the most overpraised movies there is, this features absolutely no redeeming characters and a horrible message.

By now, I have seen about 2/3 of the movies directed by Spike Lee and even though I used to be a huge fan of his work in the 90’s, it has been a while since he made something that really impressed me (for example, the recent ‘Oldboy’ remake was rather pathetic).

" Notes: I always had a weak spot for Spike Lee's movies, there was a time when he was one of the best American directors and this movie was and still is definitely his masterpiece. To be honest, it has been a while since I saw it and I should definitely re-watch it at some point but the damned thing definitely had a massive impact on me. Indeed, even though it is a rather simple story, there were so many layers, I thought it was just fascinating and I think it is one of the strongest socially c"

Dream Dictionary (878 music items)

"Right The right side of something represents that which is aligned with God and has divine authority. Dreams of the right side of the body denote power, dominance, and confidence. If you dream of a right arm, then you are dealing with an issue that is crucial, important, and invaluable. If you dream of a right hand, then this signifies superiority, and that you have a handle on things, as in a "right-hand man" is a man who gets things done. If you dream of the right wing of the government, then"
