Spike Lee earned an Oscar for his latest film BlacKkKlansman, but more than 40 of my students at SPU students are just discovering Lee’s work this week in a course called “Film & Faith.” They’re watching and discussing Lee’s 1989 landmark feature Do the Right Thing.

In the latest episode of the North by Pacific Northwest podcast, I discusses Lee’s films with cinephile, writer, and frequent Criterion Reflections contributor Josh Hornbeck.
