Bamboozled (2000)

A master of his craft, sometimes Spike Lee doesn't need to type a single word of dialogue to deliver a powerful social message. In this montage of early-twentieth-century, blacks-as-less-than-human images from the entertainment industry (accompanied by a beautifully poignant, sentimental score by Terence Blanchard), we are left with the heartbreaking paradox of witnessing exceptionally talented black men and women working within an industry that seeks to undermine their humanity.
