When The Levees Broke is by far the best documentary I have ever seen. So, when Professor Drabinski mentioned that Lee was regarded as one of the best documentary directors, I thought that he made perfect sense! But,I guess IMDB, Taste of Cinema, and even Documentary.Org don’t agree. Paste Magazine even has When The Levees Broke listed as number 61 on the top 100 documentaries. Seriously, SIXTY ONE?!? That’s just ridiculous. So, over the next few days, I’ll conduct a film analysis of When The Levees Broke to prove why it should be highly revered among the best!
It’s despicable how representations of race and gender are still problematic issues in the film industry. Why do you guys think that Spike Lee doesn’t appear in the list of documentary directors below, which was produced by IMDB?
