What is Spike Lee’s most successful film?

“Do the Right Thing” (1989), a striking look at how racial tensions boil into violence on the hottest day of the year in a Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood garnered Lee his first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

The Academy mostly overlooked the film, only nominating it for Lee’s script and Danny Aiello’s supporting performance. Instead, they chose “Driving Miss Daisy,” a more lighthearted examination of racism, as Best Picture.

What does Spike Lee do now?

Lee’s Vietnam is still a filmmaker in the film industry. Da 5 Bloods, his war film, is now available on Netflix. Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Mélanie Thierry, Paul Walter Hauser, and Chadwick Boseman starred in the film. On June 12, 2020, the film was released worldwide.

The plot of the film follows a group of aging Vietnam War veterans who return to the nation in quest of their deceased squad leader’s remains as well as the treasure they buried while serving there.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was set to have an out-of-competition premiere at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, then show in theatres in May or June before streaming on Netflix.
