The Governor's Awards of the Motion Picture Academy have been announced, and one of them is going to Spike Lee. One, Lee is only 58, which seems a bit young for a lifetime achievement award, especially considering he is still a working director. Without a doubt he has made some great films, but they are few and far between when you consider his entire output. The cynic might accuse the Academy of tokenism, as Lee is a black director, and no director of African descent has ever won an Oscar. Lee has never even been nominated as Best Director, although he does have a screenplay and documentary nomination. Over the next few weeks I'm going to visit some of Lee's films, including a few that I'll be revisiting. I'm certainly not going to watch them all--I have no burning desire to see School Daze or Girl 6 again--but I'm interested in seeing some of his more recent films, as a new film from him is no longer news. I turn to his third film, and still his best, Do the Right Thing , released in 1989. His first film, She's Gotta Have It , was an enjoyable if amateurish sex comedy that caused some to call Lee the black Woody Allen. But with Do the Right Thing , Lee matured as a filmmaker, making one of the best films of the '80s and perhaps the best American film ever about the ticklish issue of race in the U. S. I hadn't seen it since I first saw it when it was released, in... Seeing it again I marveled at Lee's assurance as a director. There are a lot of daring shots in the film, but none of them seem wrong. He uses a lot of different angles, shooting from below, shooting from above, pans, and moving cameras. The script is also terrific, focusing on 24 hours on a street in Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, where an Italian-American (Danny Aiello) has built a pizza business thriving, despite the neighborhood being entirely black or brown. Lee creates many characters in the film, a kind of patchwork quilt of modern America. Aiello has two sons, the easy-going Vito (Richard Edson) and the hate-filled Pino (John Turturro), who hates black people, even though he admires Magic Johnson, Eddie Murphy, and Prince. "They're not real black people," he hopelessly tells Mookie (Lee) a delivery man who gets along with Aiello, but is nagged by a feeling he is on the wrong side of the fence. Source: Go-Go-Rama

Popular film and television are ideally suited in understanding how emotions create culturally shared meanings. Yet very little has been done in this area. Emotion, Genre, and Justice in Film and Television explores textual representations of emotions from a cultural perspective, rather than in biological or psychological terms. It considers emotions as structures of feeling that are collectively shared and historically developed. Through their cultural meanings and uses, emotions enable social identities to be created and contested, to become fixed or alter. Popular narratives often take on emotional significance, aiding groups of people in recognizing or expressing what they feel and who they are. This book focuses on the justice genres – the generic network of film and television programs that are concerned with crime, law, and social order – to examine how fictional police, detective, and legal stories participate in collectively realized conceptions of emotion. A range of films (Crash, Man on Fire) and television series (Cold Case,Cagney and Lacey) serve as case studies to explore contemporarily relevant representations of anger, fear, loss and consolation, and compassion.
