Movie-A-Day #32: Do the Right Thing (1989).
February is Black History Month and Spike Lee would like to remind you all to “Do the Right Thing.” There are many great films out there about the black experience in America, but Lee’s explosive story of racial tensions on a hot summer day in Brooklyn is one of my favorites. Even more than two decades later, it still socks you right between the eyes. Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, John Turturro, Ruby Dee, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie Perez, even Martin Lawrence. Fight the power.
