Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 225 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! It feels strange to refer to this episode as a bonus as it’s a full on spectacular - nevertheless, here is your Friday bonus as Pip is joined by the living legend director that is SPIKE LEE!
While Spike is getting his promotion grind on for his new film BlacKkKlansman (which you should make efforts to see as it’s just been released in the UK), he fit in some Pip time which is perfect as you know Pip is quite the cinephile! So this is a grand opportunity to get in some genuine directorial knowledge from a true long term veteran in the game. You will also witness a first in the Distraction Pieces Podcast as Spike lays down a “no comment” - more on that in the podcast! Ground covered includes how he’s always been around and this isn’t a return, how BlacKkKlansman wasn’t planned and how Jordan Peele put the bug in his ear, the 70’s look of the film while being contemporary, the natural humour in the film and how it derives from such a wild premise, the importance of music, how the director of photography needs to be in sync with the director, giving actors their debuts, rolling with the changes in cinema and establishing himself as the Spike Lee of all Spike Lee Joints! A huge episode. You will enjoy. It’s fair to say this is a Spike Lee Joint.
