Thoughts on RECOUNT

Thoughts on RECOUNT

I was tres impressed, and suitably outraged by the HBO original movie Recount. (I smell an Emmy for Laura Dern!)

RECOUNT reminded me of something else:

Spike Lee’s brilliant WE WUZ ROBBED, a swiftly edited, perfectly paced, compact, restrained, but filled with rage account of the decision to recount. The film is a singular achievement–and anyone who hasn’t seen it, should.

WE WUZ ROBBED ought to be required viewing for all American Citizens. Period.

We Wuz Robbed

Succinct. Perfect.

Spike Lee’s documentary work will be given it’s due in June at SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival at the stunning AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, MD.
