From the opening credits of Spike Lee's first film, She's Gotta Have It, viewers were able to recognize the presence of an extraordinary new talent. With unparalleled cinematic intelligence, Lee pushed past the urban and racial dividing lines that had marginalized black filmmakers, and earned the respect of critics and audiences around the world. Criterion has been privileged to work with Lee on two of its most celebrated Director Approved editions.

The Criterion Collection is proud to present the director's cut of the "seriously sexy comedy" that put Spike Lee on the map. Never before available on laserdisc, Lee's modern classic follows the fortunes of seductive Nola Darling and the three men who love her. Criterion's release of She's Gotta Have It is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1 and includes these features:

  • Exclusive presentation of the unrated director's cut, featuring material censored from the original theatrical release
  • Audio commentary by Spike Lee, cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, sound designer Barry Brown, and production supervisor Monty Ross
  • Outtakes and scene deleted from the final cut
  • The original theatrical trailer
  • Still photos, the She's Gotta Have It music video, Nike ads featuring Spike and Michael Jordan, and more
