Miracle at St. Anna should be remade, also Spike Lee should make another, less fantastic/more realistic, movie about WWII

Saw Miracle at St. Anna recently - very interesting story, but I think maybe Spike Lee was not the best director for that kind of material - Mr. Lee's vision seemed too hard edged for a fantastic story such as Anna. I think that movie should have been handled like a myth or a fable - by a director who is more comfortable with that kind of softer storytelling. On the other hand, I think Mr. Lee could make an awesome movie - a more realistic story (from perhaps a script based on actual events only) - about African-American or any other type of soldiers in WWII (i thought his Malcolm X was a very good movie).

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
