Spike Lee has released his latest film  ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ online ahead of its theatrical release next month.  The movie is and adaption of the 1973 blaxploitation film ‘Ganja and Hess’ and is now available to stream purchase on Vimeo for $9.99. You can watch the film’s trailer below:

If you missed it, Spike Lee had this to say about the Oscar snubbing of Selma. Talking to the Daily Beast, Le-who had been snubbed by the Academy for ‘Do The Right Thing’ and ‘Malcolm X’- had this advice for Selma director Ava Duvernay:

Fuck em. That doesn’t diminish the film. Nobody’s talking about motherf–kin’ ‘Driving Miss Daisy. That film is not being taught in film schools all across the world like ‘Do The Right Thing’ is. Nobody’s discussing ‘Driving Miss Motherf–kin’ Daisy’. So if I saw Ava today, I’d say, ‘You know what? Fuck ’em. You made a very good film, so feel good about that and start working on the next one.”
