She’s Got to Have It

She's_Gotta_Have_It_film_poster Hoping to continue to the discussion on She’s Got to Have It. Feel free to add comments from our conversation in class about Nola Darling as a symbolic whore.  How does Spike Lee frame her as a sexual deviant? What does it mean to be a good girl in Spike Lee’s world? And would Nola Darling ever fit in? With talk of making She’s Got to Have it into a cable show, along the lines of Girls, could Spike Lee make Nola Darling into the sexually liberated and self affirmed woman he thinks he portrayed her to be? Please review these articles and comment Why we should worry about a resurrected ‘She’s Gotta Have It’
