Maybe it's just me, but after working my ass off over enough years, on dozens of sets large and small, with hundreds of dedicated and talented people, I find it hard to be overly critical of cinema. I love the world, the art, the effort, the business even. It all comes together. I only hate when people don't respect the process and half-ass it.

Spike Lee obviously got permission to do this and he's a master of his craft. So I'll be happy to watch it. That said: I hope they get the hallway fight scene down to one shot, the original was priceless.

Off my tangent, I think it's an interesting idea to know what emerging filmmakers can do in attempt to capture the essence of, and adapt, old favorites - even from foreign territory - to short film.

Let's get what we came for,
