“This is the best film by Spike Lee. It is one of my favorite stories that realistically portrays the neighborhood of Brooklyn. Beautiful shots, editing, acting, screenplay, and memorable characters.” read more

"On the one hand, it's hardly surprising that Spike Lee's era-defining, revolutionary "Do The Right Thing" didn't get more Academy love; since when has anything truly revolutionary really been embraced by an institution that is this invested in the status quo? And let's remember this was 26 years before #OscarsSoWhite became a thing — indeed years before hashtags, twitter or any of the tools of today's outrage culture were even developed, when the discourse was largely controlled by the industr"
