Armed with 16mm cameras, a miniscule budget financed independently by 15
different black businessmen, and a wonderful script, Spike shot "Get On The
Bus" and released it to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the 1995
Million Man March. Set on a bus bound for Washington D.C., this film
examines the problems and opinions of various of black men on racial issues
in the 90's.
Family, misogyny, homosexuality, religion, violence, education, and
economics are all addressed here as well as other issues. Spike does not
only shed light on issues that pertain to black peoples involvement in
America, but the film also attacks color-consciousness among light-skinned
and dark-skinned blacks (as he did in "School Daze"). Like "School Daze,"
this may be the only other Spike Lee film that seems to be aimed directly
Black America, and Spike shows the varying degrees of complexity with his
cast of characters. There is a rage-filled actor, a homosexual couple in
the midst of separating (one out-and-proud, the other closeted), a
cop, a level-headed family man, a gangbanger turned Sunni Muslim, a naive
filmmaker, and a tired, defeated elderly man. There is also an estranged
father who sees the March as an opportunity to re-connect with his
resentful, bound-for-crime teenage son. His son has been recently
of burglary and has been ordered to remain "chained" to his father for 48
hours, the irony of which does not escape the other members on the
Given the film is almost set entirely on a bus, Spike restrains himself in
dispensing out his evolving camera and editing styles, using only a brief
sequence set in a desert to bleach the screen with a heavy yellow tint.
Many Spike Lee regulars are in the film, like Ossie Davis and Isaiah
Washington who give sound performances (Davis' "I lost everything"
is especially moving). The real notable acting is provided by Andre
Braugher as an angry, egocentric actor whose rage is fortunately balanced
for him with a healthy dose of articulated intelligence and Roger Guenever
Smith as a sensitive, bi-racial cop who works in South Central Los Angeles.
Those two really are the stand-outs in this film.
The dialogue is so flowing and casual in this film despite its topic
that you could listen to this film instead of watch it! I can't recommend
this film enough for fans of Spike Lee or fans of great dialogue. As a
Spike Lee worshipper, I rank this film in his top 5. Potent.
