But after brutal responses from critics, his quest to remake cinema with crystalline digital imagery and 3-D effects is finding few followers.
This weekend, Lee will release into theaters the latest result of his newfound digital faith, "Gemini Man."
It stars Will Smith as a government assassin who discovers his former mentor cloned him.
Like Lee's previous film, the Iraq War veteran tale "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk," ''Gemini Man" was made with a frame rate of 120 frames-per-second and in 3-D.
And like "Billy Lynn," the response from critics has been rough.
Reviewers have criticized the film's uninspired storyline but critics' primary contention is with the hyper-realism of its high-frame-rate.
