reason #456 to love HBO

August 21, 2006

I started a post about Spike Lee’s new documentary about Hurricane Katrina, When the Levees Broke, but then realized how ridiculous it is to blog about a movie I haven’t seen yet. The first two parts premiere tonight on HBO; the second two tomorrow night (both at 9 PM). All four parts (one hour apiece) will be aired on August 29th, the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Interesting reviews/opinions:

N.O. Better Blues (from Salon.com, brief summary and then description of the New Orleans premiere of the film)
‘When the Levees Broke’: Spike Lee’s Tales From a Broken City (NYTimes review)
Spike Lee Films the New Orleans Disaster His Way (NYTimes opinion piece, not exactly my opinion but an interesting read)

See the full airing schedule here.
