I didn't mean that Spike shouldn't write his films

His voice is a huge part of what makes his films great. I meant he needs someone to write *with* him and even more importantly, say "no" to him and and keep him from doing the goofy shit he has the tendency to do that mar potentially powerful scenes. The end of "Jungle Fever" is the ultimate example of this. Had any collaborator worth his salt been helping Spike write that film, that scene definitely would have been much different (if it existed at all).
