I always loved Spike Lee's movies and this one is definitely his masterpiece. It is a simple story but there are so many layers, I thought it was just fascinating. Like Roger Ebert, I am quite amazed that such important movie was not nominated for the Best picture academy award. Anyway, I think it is a great classic and it is definitely worth a look.

My all time fave film. Weirdly enough, I don't really like Spike Lee's films but this one is a masterpiece. All the characters are memorable and their interplay is fantastic.

It's the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, and tensions are growing there, with the only local businesses being a Korean grocery and Sal's Pizzeria. Mookie, Sal's delivery boy, manages to always be at the center of the action.

New York movies:The 100 best films set in New York (100 movies items)

"Placing his thumb firmly on a contemporary sore spot, Spike Lee turned up the heat on New York’s melting pot and watched things boil over. Outraged over the 1986 Howard Beach incident, Lee responded with a 360-degree look at what happens when tempers flare and breaking points are reached. Spike’s magnum opus also doubles as a vivid expressionistic portrait of his native Brooklyn, playing out in a Bed-Stuy neighborhood as colorful as any Gauguin painting: Every stoop philosopher, prophet of a"

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Drama Directed by Spike Lee. Stars Spike Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, John Turturro, Rosie Perez, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis. Maybe the best movie about race ever made (go fuck yourself, Crash). The writing is great, the characters feel real and stylized at the same time. It's both dramatic and really funny. A ton of memorable characters."
