Wikipedia says, “She's Gotta Have It is a 1986 American comedy-drama film written, edited and directed by Spike Lee. Filmed on a small budget and Lee's first feature-length film, it earned positive reviews and launched Lee's career.” I had to look to Wikipedia for answers initially because, like many others in my generation, I had simply never gotten around to seeing this classic Spike Lee Joint. Now, Lee has reincarnated his original vision into a Netflix series, and from what I’ve seen so far it’s clear that even those not as familiar with the ebbs and flows of Spike’s signature style will be hard pressed to not love it. That probably has something to do with Lee’s love for Brooklyn that’s so strong it seems to seep through every establishing shot. Or maybe it’s just got everything to do with #NolaDarling.
