Well, this is the best movie news in a while.  A new Spike Lee joint drops on Netflix on June 12th (my birthday, no less).  The premise is also right up my alley:  4 vets return to Vietnam, seeking their squad leader's remains.  The cast includes two alums of The Wire (Clarke Peters and Isiah Whitlock [sheeeeee-it!]), plus Delroy Lindo and Chadwick Boseman.  To say I'm excited about this would be a vast understatement.

I'm not gonna watch the trailer, but in case anyone wants to:

Thanks for the alert. This does look like a potential highlight of the summer. Some basic conversation from Spike Lee here.


"...the vivid crossing of borders between film and theology may save the film from the banality of cinema and festival business, and it may also save the church from the deep sleep of the habitual and the always known."

(Hans Werner Dannowski)

Hey, birthday buddy!

Man, I can't wait for this film.
