Two of the most polarizing contemporary directors...


Who is your choice?

Stone for his movies exploring the 60s era.

Tough call, but Spike Lee has a film in my all time top 5 with "Do the Right Thing" and I can't even think of an Oliver Stone film for a top 10.

Stone; I loved his takes on the various presidencies with JFK, Nixon, and W.

Spike Lee. While I don't always agree with his opinions, his films are some of my all-time favorites.

For me, it comes down to Do The Right Things vs. JFK, and JFK wins.

JFK is in my top 10 of all-time. I really love his vietnam trilogy, Talk Radio, Salvador and Nixon.

My favorite Lee films are Do The Right Thing, 25th Hour and Clockers.


Stone gets the nod.

Stone's stretch from 1986 through 1997 is one of the strongest runs by a director ever:

Salvador (1986), Platoon (1986), Wall Street (1987), Talk Radio (1988), Born on the Fourth of July (1989), The Doors (1991), JFK (1991), Heaven & Earth (1993), Natural Born Killers (1994), Nixon (1995), U Turn (1997)

11 consecutive well made, impressive movies in a 12 year stretch. Robert Richardson was a major factor as well.

Stone gets my vote all the way.

I like "Do Tha Right Thing" more than any of Stones films, but I like more of Stone's films than Spike's, so I'll vote for Stone.
