He’s a complicated man, and no one understands him but his webmaster… I’m talking about director John Singleton, baby. The moviemaker behind this summer’s Shaft has his filmography sized up by L.A.-based online writer (and self-professed friend) Michael Dequina at The Films of John Singleton website (singleton.homepage.com).
