Spike Lee speaks

Interview on with the filmmaker. An excerpt:
People are getting tired of seeing TV shows remade, or movies from the 1950s, and comic books, and sequels. People say, well, it can't be the films; it's the video games, it's the 900 channels, it's this and that. All those things are a factor, but I think the biggest factor is that films aren't connecting with the audience. I mean, look. March of the Penguins. ... People went to see that film because there was nothing else to see. If there were good movies in the theater, they're not going to see a documentary about penguins.

Aww...I think someone's jealous that they haven't had a hit since Jungle Fever.
