Throughout the 90s, he made at least one film a year[[note]]This was because he was disappointed that African-American filmmakers tended to go a long time between films[[/note]]. This didn't carry through into the 00s, however. ''Film/TwentyFifthHour'' is often cited as one of his best films, but his next film, ''Film/SheHateMe'', is considered one of his worst. ''Film/InsideMan'' (2006), was his biggest hit to date. Also in 2006,he made the acclaimed documentary ''When the Levees Broke''. Despite this, he still had trouble getting two projects off the ground: a James Brown biopic and a film about the L.A. riots.

African-American film maker, very opiniated, very polarizing, very influential. Throughout the 90s, he made at least one film a year[[hottip:*:This was because he was disappointed that African-American filmmakers tended to go a long time between films]]. This didn't carry through into the 00s, however. ''Film/TwentyFifthHour'' is often cited as one of his best films, but his next film, ''SheHateMe'', is considered one of his worst. His next film, ''InsideMan'', was his biggest hit yet. At that same time, he made the acclaimed documentary ''When the Levees Broke''. Despite this, he still had trouble getting two projects off the ground-a James Brown biopic and a film about the L.A. riots. When he did make another film, WWII tale ''Miracle at St. Anna'', it was a commercial failure and received mixed reviews among critics. Most recently, he has been chosen to ruin an English-language remake of the South Korean thriller ''{{Film/Oldboy}}''.
