Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus was an invigorating, liberating experience, that broke off the shackles of Oldboy. Unless you’re doing Spider-Man 10, you put your art out there having no idea how it will end up. It all can be satisfying. I tell my students this all the time. To me, filmmaking is a big umbrella, under which there can be a three hour film like Malcolm X, or two four-hour documentaries like When The Levees Broke, or a 30 second commercial with Michael Jordan, or a Michael Jackson video we did in Brazil. I’ve enjoyed it all, the big budget movies like Inside Man. People said, you, doing a heist movie? I like heist films, and Sidney Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon is one of my all-time favorite films. It’s unfortunate that because of films like Do The Right Thing and Jungle Fever and Malcolm X, some people try to put a straitjacket on me, that I can only do films that deal with race. But if people wish to spend the time, they will see the diversity in the work I’ve done.

Do any of you have a copy of this DVD? If so, I’d like to know what are the scenes that are on here (142mins) that are not on the 126 min cut (which is the only cut that I’ve seen). Also, does this DVD have any special features? Thanks!

As far as I remember, the singing scene and the bathroom puking and farting scenes are much longer. There is a commentary and a making of? Maybe an interview. I let a friend borrow it a long time ago. Need to get it back. The quality isn’t half bad either. Great release overall.

My first day in like two weeks where I haven’t been extremely anxious or depressed all day. Still didn’t feel great, but no freak outs at all. It felt really good and I am optimistic about the next few days. Thanks to everyone who reached out to me on here or texted me or whatever. I really appreciate it. There are so many kind people and I hate that anyone has to ever go through anything like this.

This has been the background on my laptop for so long it freaked me out to see this picture not in that context.
