Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of his generation. The 25th Hour is the best creations.With interest, the primary material Spike Lee is not content to tell tell a story. Shuffles the sequence of events, playing with flash back and other techniques. The result is attractive, looking like a puzzle that we need to fill in seeing the film. Interestingly, and "racial" finding of Lee, where all the thugs and drug dealers are white, while their persecutors black. The Edward Norton is impeccable in the role of Monty Brogan, a man who suddenly sees his life taking a pessimistic turn while doing the self's. The 25th Hour is definitely one of the best, but perhaps the most misunderstood movies.A trully masterpiece!
