    A spiritually enriching testament to the human capacity for change -- and surely Spike Lee's most universally appealing film.
  2. A mortal movie about an immortal subject and the very fact that it succeeds as well as it does is a testament to Lee's skills as a filmmaker.
  3. Lee has tried hard to give this shapeless picture some visual patterning though the cluttered effect created by his mistrust of silence is even more harmful than in the past.
