He's one of the few US filmmakers rated properly (or even underrated). Top 100 filmmaker behind Cassavetes (whose Shadows was the pivotal influence on Lee's debut - and best film - She's Gotta Have It), Kubrick, Sturges, Lynch, Lumet, Altman, Mamet, Allen etc. Streets ahead of Tarantino, PTA, and most other US filmmakers today not named Scorsese.
She's Gotta Have It
Summer of Sam - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood wishes it could be this film.
Mo' Better Blues
Sucker Free City
In that order. Heaps of good stuff.
