  • Do the Right Thing

    1989. USA. Written and directed by Spike Lee. With Lee, John Turturro, Danny Aiello. An ambiguously titled, highly charged, and volatile portrait of a Brooklyn neighborhood, formerly Italian and now primarily Black, on one sweltering summer day. Seen through the windows of a local family-run pizza parlor, a holdout from another generation, racial violence simmers and explodes. Lee's drama, inflected with bawdy humor, is a fearless look at the effects of prejudice. 120 min.
