Spike Lee's most beautifully preachy moments

4. Fuck you, mirror
25th Hour

The night before he begins serving a seven-year prison sentence (in which he's certain violent rape is in the cards), Monty Brogan has a heart-to-heart with himself in front of the mirror. Utilizing the popular cinematic technique of mirror-as-symbol-of-duality, the character unleashes a monologue of bigoted hatred toward a variety of New York stereotypes before eventually coming full circle and realizing it's only himself that he despises.
