Spike Lee

Director/Producer/Writer In 1986, Spike Lee emerged in a major way with his film She's Gotta Have It, which was made with less than $200,000 and went on to become a cult classic--making $7 million along the way. He followed that comedy with School Daze in '88 and then his iconic film Do the Right Thing, about his neighborhood, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. The film gained critical acclaim and garnered a Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Danny Aiello.  He went on to create at least nine more films, including Malcolm X, Bamboozled, Clockers and three documentaries. Lee is also known for his obsession with the New York Knicks basketball team.
