Re: Dear White People (2014)
This movie should be expanding as soon as this Friday, so keep your eyes peeled.
Well, Spike is mentioned on numerous occasions, and one character is even studying filmmaking. At one point, she creates a hilarious silent film about all the anti-Obama slander and calls it "Rebirth of a Nation."
I hope this does well at the box office as it goes wider. We've seen a lot of race-relations themed movies recently (The Help, Django Unchained, The Butler, 42, 12 Years a Slave, etc.), but with the exception of FRUITVALE STATION, they've all looked through a historical lense. Much like my favorite film of 2013, I want to see more movies take a modern-day approach. It's a bolder way to go IMHO.
