Spike Lee is celebrating his 60th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.
Popular director Spike Lee (25th Hour, Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 60th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Lee, a cultural icon
Born Shelton Jackson Lee in Atlanta on March 20, 1957, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in American history. Lee's not just a great director, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Spike hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Spike Lee as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 60.
Happy Birthday, Spike, you're the best!
