Spike Lee, whose new film “Oldboy” opens November 27,
has had a career kind of like the trash can his character tosses through a window in “Do the Right Thing” (1989), challenging the status quo both politically and cinematically. Beneath the truculence, though, lies a poet capable of the eloquence seen in his documentary, “When the Levees Broke: a Requiem in Four Parts” (2006). Which of his features do you like best? Put your choices in the comments section or drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is Monday, November 25. We’ll be running the top five on December 1.
