Informative and entertaining documentary on the Katrina disaster. Racially charged and full of conspiracy theories. A bit one-sided.

This is a must-see dvd. Get the real truth behind the tragedy of katrina. Personal interviews with victims and a candid look at the reaction of the politicians juxtaposed to the reaction by ordinary citizens shows who the real heroes were and are in this story. Spike Lee pulls no punches, but you will have to decide for yourself whether the neglect of the people in the aftermath of the storm was the result of racism or classism (or both).
