The Eternal Maverick
By (author) Ray Shell
Spike Lee by Ray Shell
Book DescriptionSpike Lee's first film, which he funded on a credit card, won a slew of awards and ushered in the reign of one of the most significant and influential filmmakers America has ever produced. Yet, even after 30 years in the business and despite having kickstarted the careers of many Hollywood greats (including Samuel L. Jackson, Laurence Fishbourne, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry and Wesley Snipes), he still remains a Hollywood outsider, an eternal maverick. This is his remarkable story.
