Spike Lee's: School Daze
Spike Lee's: School Daze

Friday April 8, 2011

8:00 PM  

Lane University Center 111


Spike Lee's follow-up to his unlikely hit She's Gotta Have It was this ambitious--some would say too ambitious--attempt at a musical about college life. But Lee, ever the provocateur, doesn't settle for a simple college comedy. Rather, he wants to make a point about the social divisions within all-black colleges: between the socializers and the socially conscious, and between light and dark-skinned blacks. Laurence Fishburne plays a politically aware student trying to bring his fellow students together; Giancarlo Esposito plays the fraternity boss who constantly seeks to insert a wedge between the haves and have-nots. Lee himself plays a pawn in the middle, a would-be frat boy undergoing a wicked Hell Week as a pledge. The story doesn't pull together and the musical numbers--more spoof than anything else--only serve to fragment it. While it offers interesting points, it never does so in a particularly cohesive way.

Imagine a former IRS tax auditor telling you how to prepare your taxes. Imagine the head engineer at Lexus fixing your car whenever it breaks down. Imagine your college professor helping you write the essay questions for your final exam. That's what "Confessions of a Recruiting Director" is for students looking to land their first job -- the ultimate insider's guide to navigate the hiring maze. "Confessions of a Recruiting Director" is an "exposé" that dispels the myths and uncovers the truths behind getting that first job. From the moment you click "send" on your computer to submit your resume, what happens? How are just a few candidates chosen from a stack of hundreds of resumes? What exactly are Recruiting Directors looking to hear when they interview candidates? What are the common mistakes that students make time and time again?
