The grandfather tires of life with the bleak family and so goes to an old people home. But that proves repressive, so he and a couple of mates leave to enact a money-making scheme. When that fails, the old boy finds himself alone and destitute on the rough roads of Sofia where his despairing eyes witness the further ruination of his homeland.

Get on the Bus Reviews:

Armed with 16mm cameras, a miniscule budget financed independently by 15 various black businessmen, and a unbelievable script, Spike shot "Get On The Bus" and released it to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the 1995 Million Boy March. Set on a bus bound for Washington D.C., this movie examines the issues and opinions of different of black boys on racial problems in the 90's.Family, misogyny, homosexuality, religion, violence, education, and economics are all addressed here as well as another issues. Spike does not only shed light on problems that pertain to black peoples involvement in White America, but the movie also attacks color-consciousness among light-skinned and dark-skinned blacks (as he did in "School Daze"). Like "School Daze," this may be the only another Spike Lee movie that seems to be aimed directly at Black America, and Spike shows the varying degrees of complexity with his cast of characters. There is a rage-filled actor, a homosexual couple in the midst of separating (one out-and-proud, the another closeted), a sensitive cop, a level-headed family man, a gangbanger turned Sunni Muslim, a naive filmmaker, and a tired, defeated elderly man. There is also an estranged father who sees the March as an occasion to re-connect with his resentful, bound-for-crime teenage son. His son has been recently convicted of burglary and has been ordered to remain "chained" to his father for 48 hours, the irony of which does not escape the another members on the bus.Given the movie is almost set entirely on a bus, Spike restrains himself in dispensing out his evolving camera and editing styles, using only a brief sequence set in a desert to bleach the screen with a massive yellow tint. Many Spike Lee regulars are in the film, like Ossie Davis and Isaiah Washington who give sound performances (Davis' "I lost everything" monologue is especially moving). The true notable acting is provided by Andre Braugher as an angry, egocentric actor whose rage is fortunately balanced for him with a healthy dose of articulated intelligence and Roger Guenever Smith as a sensitive, bi-racial cop who works in South Central Los Angeles. Those two really are the stand-outs in this film.The dialogue is so flowing and casual in this movie despite its subject matter, that you should listen to this movie instead of watch it! I can't suggest this movie enough for fanatics of Spike Lee or fanatics of nice dialogue. As a Spike Lee worshipper, I rank this movie in his top 5. Potent.


I just got done watching Spike Lee's "Get on the Bus" for the first time in about a year. The film is done in a manner, I can't really describe it, that is very various from previous efforts by Spike Lee. The movie follows a bus of about twenty men, all African-American, on a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the Million March that was held there in 1995, about a year before this film was made. We follow every of the men, including a father and son who have tethered together on a court order; a homophobic actor, who takes an instant disliking to two homosexual men; a cop whose father was killed in the line of duty; a former gang member who is actually a social services worker for troubled children who he's trying to hold from living a life in gangs; an up and coming movie student, who is video taping the happening so he can present it to his future children; and an open-hearted elderly boy who is going to the Million Boy March simply because he wants to."Get on the Bus" is in my opinion, one of Spike Lee's greatest films. Every of the characters are special in one a method or another.A movie that is not to be missed.


Receive On The Bus is probably one best films folks do NOT know about. This film territories boys of all ages and various backgrounds together headed to The Million Boy March. Although many may not relate to Farrakhan and his beliefs, they will, however, be educated on problems of race, unity, and respect. Regardless of skin color or ethnic background, folks can easy relate to the characters on-screen. If anything, Receive On The Bus will teach anyone to have a deeper love and appreciation of our fellow man.
