This Month’s Highlights

School Daze

Generally underrated, this (his second film) is, in many ways, the template for everything about Spike Lee we’d come to expect in the years to come. Messy, wildly varying in tones, and frequently undisciplined, there’s still never a single second when you’re not absolutely absorbed by everything you’re watching, and the film seems incapable of presenting a boring shot. Still probably the funniest of all of Lee’s work, this is the director when he was still just throwing everything to the wall and seeing what stuck. Its roughshod charm is infectious. — Will Leitch and Tim Grierson
