Pop Poetry #2

The Return of Spike Lee! Woot.

That brother has always been fascinating. Don’t agree with the whole Knicks thing (leftover resentment from the Jordan/Bulls days) but can’t really fault him as a filmmaker.

If God Is Willing & Da Creek Don’t Rise (so not a twitter friendly title!) is the sequel of sorts to When the Levees Broke, both epics documenting Katrina and all the resulting fallout, racism, struggles and beatings. (Great Zeppelin song, When the Levee Breaks…nothing to do with the subject at hand, just a free observation).

But it’s one of the trailers for If God Is Willing that captured my interest. And is today’s Pop Poetry feature. Enjoy!
