The Year in DVDs


1. When the Levees Broke (NR; $29.98) and The Spike Lee Joint Collection (Clockers, Jungle Fever, Do the Right Thing, Mo' Better Blues, and Crooklyn) (R; $26.98)
After directing the worst films of his career (She Hate Me, Sucker Free City), Spike Lee stormed back this year with the fun heist pic Inside Man and his three-hour Katrina documentary, When the Levees Broke. Seen on HBO, Levees was an astounding act of empathy, but the expanded DVD goes even deeper—with 90 minutes of new material, a heartbreaking photo gallery, and revealing commentary from Lee throughout. The throwback Spike Lee Joint Collection, priced to buy and packed with five early films, reminds you that Lee mattered as much back then as he does now.
