Eastwood & Lee

"A guy like him should shut his face." ~ Clint Eastwood

"First of all, the man is not my father and we're not
on a plantation either. ..." ~ Spike Lee

Spike is right about history, about the racism of American media (both in war reporting and subsequent Hollywood romanticization of the war) and about Eastwood's surly remark. My problem is that I like both as directors. Hopefully, this spat will simply fade away. Life is too short.
