Phyllis Leblanc opens this raw and honest documentary with what should be an award winning soliloquy. Go Phyllis Go! And once again Spike Lee has created an epic doc on the injustices of poor and often black Americans left behind by the human disaster called Katrina. This is the sequel to his first Katrina documentary, When the Levees broke, and it doesn't miss a beat. Should be essential viewing for all students.

I gave a presentation in college about this very thing - along these very lines - a year before this was made. This is an EXCELLENT documentary and every American should HAVE to watch this. This is an ongoing issue in the U.S. and a fine example of the way things are working behind everyone's everyday life. I just can't say enough about all of the points and issues this doc brings up and how important it is for everyone to think about.
