Dir. Spike Lee. 2002, 135 mins. Digital projection. Edward Norton, Barry Pepper, Philip Seymour Hoffman. As a doleful English teacher, Hoffman stands out in the outstanding ensemble for Spike Lee’s film, which was the first major movie to acknowledge the September 11th attacks. Adapting David Benioff’s novel, Lee captures the somber atmosphere of life near ground zero with a story set over the course of a tense day in which a convicted drug dealer (Edward Norton) tries to make peace before going behind bars.
Please note: due to poor print quality, this film will no longer be projected in 35mm.
