Movies »She’s Gotta Have It

She's Gotta Have ItIn junior high, even when “Do The Right Thing” was blowing my mind and I was all about Spike Lee and his “joints“, this was his movie I never had any interest in seeing.

Today, I've always shied away from its early-indie amateur qualities which I feared might be annoying. While it does have all the staples of the stereotypical independent film, I was surprised to find myself really enjoying this quiet and engaging movie.

A frank, if not somewhat unrealistic, portrait of a woman's, Nola Darling's, sexuality and her relationships with three men. Spike Lee himself plays one of these men, Mars Blackmon, the Daniel Leeb of the movie, a character you may remember from Nike commercials of the late 80s and early 90s.

While this movie lacks the depth and sophistication of Do The Right Thing, this less watched charmer is worth a look.
