‘She’s Gotta Have It’: Now Get It on DVD

Twenty-two years later, Spike Lee’s sweaty indie sex comedy has finally hit video. Not all of it has aged well: Tracy Camilla Johns as the film’s romanticized, oversexed man-juggler is all wrapped up in Lee’s horny male gaze. But what a gaze! And one not just trained on naked young women, but Brooklyn streets, authentically tiny apartments, and one goofy little shrimp with a rickety bike. This wasn’t just Lee’s debut, remember, but the birth of Lee as Mars “Is-it-the-shoes?” Blackmon, the guy who really paid for the filmmaker’s next several indies.
