Director and material come together with perfect ease in Spike Lee’s stirring drama about 15 men from L.A. who board a bus for last year’s Million Man March. Wise elder, young film student, former gang member-turned-Muslim, biracial cop, gay ex-lovers — these metaphorical men may be too good to be true, but unexpected goodness is exactly Lee’s point. B+
