Get on the Bus

Spike Lee

Marking a dazzling return to form for director Spike Lee, Get on the Bus is an intricate and emotionally powerful tale of a diverse group of black men who travel from Los Angeles to Washington to participate in the Million Mile March. Lee has managed to flourish under the restraints of a small budget and has garnered superb performances from his players. Family, race, creed and sexuality are just some of the issues addressed here, and while Lee can be a little heavy handed at times, the overall results are never less than honest and affecting.

U.S.A., 1996.
