KOBE DOIN' WORK (DVD)
I THOUGHT SPIKE LEE WAS A KNICKS' FAN???
Mr. Spike “Do The Right Thing” Lee is known for many things. Film director and die-hard Knicks fan are two that come to mind. That’s why I was surprised when I heard he made a film about Lakers’ all-star Kobe Bryant. Well whatever his motivation, Spike made a fine film following Kobe on court during a very pivotal game in the 2007-08 season. Kobe Doin' Work is an in-depth look at one of the NBA’s best players during a game between the Lakers and Spurs. With Kobe as the narrator and footage from the game filmed using 30 cameras, you literally feel like you are on the court yourself. For any serious basketball fan, this is as close as you can get to feel like you are a player yourself. The camera work in this film is incredible, and I was very impressed with this film that’s definitely not the standard “Spike Lee Joint”. Overall, Kobe Doin' Work is a very entertaining look at a tremendously talented player.
