About this title

Synopsis:

Spike Lee wrote, directed and starred in She's Gotta Have It, the independent-film success story of 1986. Shot on a shoe-string budget of $175,000 in black-and-white 16mm, the film was made with Spike Lee's persistence and talent plus the help of family and friends. It grossed $8 million at the box office and proved to be a major hit with both critics and audiences. Now Spike Lee reveals how he did it, mapping out the entire creative and production processes-from early notebook jottings to film festival awards. Spike Lee's Gotta Have It is a unique document in film literature - it's funny, absorbing, and fresh as the hit film itself.

From Publishers Weekly:

The focus here is Spike Lee, writer, director and star of the 1986 independent film She's Gotta Have It, which cost $175,000 to make, grossed $8 million and won the Prix de Jeunesse at Cannes. In an extended interview with George, Lee discusses his childhood, parents, film school, friends, influences, early films and She's Gotta Have It, about which he says, "We wanted to show some kind of black sensuality that I know people want to see, but for whatever reason don'tbecause white people don't know how to handle it." The centerpiece of the book is a journal Lee kept from 1984 to 1986. It traces the film from his earliest ideas ("Men . . . are encouraged to have and enjoy sex, while it's not so for women. Why this double standard?"), scriptwriting and revising, money-raising efforts, production crises, personal notes ("lost weight, down to 115 pounds"), deal-making and Hollywood interest. This diary communicates Lee's fierce drive and determination and is an engrossing document of the creative process. His fans oughtta get it.
