Mo' Better Blues

I have never watched this movie in it's entirety, until this afternoon.

While I cringe whenever Spike Lee speaks, I cannot deny that I loved this movie.
The soundtrack, mostly by Spike Lee's dad, Bill beautiful.

...and while I have a love/hate relationship with Spike Lee's movies, I loved this one.

The visuals...kind of a cross between the 40's and the 90's, and John Turturro, as well as Samuel L showing up in small parts...I cannot deny a love for Bill Nunn and Giancarlo Esposito.

Some of the dialogue is a bit hoaky, but can be overlooked because of the above.
