Spike Lee: Do the Right Thing

American film, including Hollywood, has produced its share of serious film artists
. These include directors who worked inside and outside of the studio system from the 1930s through the 1960s, the golden age of independent film, starting with John Cassavetes in the late 1950s through the 1970s; and the new generations of filmmakers working with and without Hollywood support.
