Film Series: Do the Right Thing

1989. USA. Dir: Spike Lee. With Ossie Davis, Danny Aiello. 120 min.


In this panorama of a predominantly Black community in Brooklyn, Lee himself plays a delivery man for an Italian-American pizzeria owner. Entangled in the looming racial tensions (and confrontational shot/reverse shots), he soon finds himself at the center of an escalating conflict on the hottest day of the year.
