Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” Remake Is a Panorama of Anguish, Ambition, and Identity

When I interviewed Spike Lee in 2014, in his Fort Greene studio, his first words to me as we shook hands were, “When was the last time you were in Brooklyn?” (I had been to BAM about a month earlier.) Lee is a filmmaker of place; his movies have ranged wide, from Chicago to Italy, but he keeps coming back to Brooklyn, and his ten-part adaptation of his 1986 breakthrough feature, “She’s Gotta Have It,” which drops on Netflix tomorrow, is a story of place.

Often, it’s a way to hush up bad reviews to make sure the public haven’t read any negative press before deciding whether to part with their cash. Flatliners, a remake of the 1990 film of the same name, is one such film which wasn’t screened for critics before its release last Friday. It stars Ellen Page and James Norton – with Kiefer Sutherland (who appeared in the original) even making an appearance. The…
