When The Levees Broke Regie Spike Lee


Lee was bearing witness to a wound that was still bleeding, and his film is a traumatized cry for help, for change, for a national reckoning. It’s a work of agitation, not quite propagandistic but certainly designed to have an effect beyond itself as it levels pointed critiques at the lax George W. Bush administration, lethally inept Army Corps of Engineers, and weaselly insurance companies.

The experience as a whole is so powerful that I’m tempted to call this over four-hour documentary Lee’s masterpiece to date. For its remarkable cast of characters, its comprehensive and even epic treatment of a major catastrophe in all its multidimensional aspects, for its political and ethical clarity (as well as its focused and wholly justifiable anger), and above all, for its soul, it shows a maturity and balance that may be unparalleled in Lee’s work.
