Do the Right Thing 
Do the Right Thing review
4/4 stars

"Hope the block is still standing...We're still standing." A story of different characters such as Mookie (Spike Lee), Sal (Danny Aiello), Vito (Richard Edson), Pino (John Turturro), Tina (Rosie Perez), Señor Love Daddy (Samuel L. Jackson) and many more. Buggin’ Out (Giancarlo Esposito) had a concern with the “wall of fame” in Sal’s Famous Pizza joint since there were no successful black individuals included. Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn) is appalled with the treatment of other people so he joins Buggin’ Out in protesting the restaurant. One of many great lines: Radio Raheem - “Let me tell you the story of right hand-left hand. It's a tale of good and evil....Ooh, it's a devastating right and Hate is hurt. He's down. Left-Hand Hate KO-ed by Love.” and "Yo! Hold up! Time out! Time out! Y'all take a chill!" from Mister Señor Love Daddy.

The music was suited for the films themes of racism, freedom of speech, love, hope of unification and respect of one’s culture/race/society. Script was funny and thought provoking at the same time. Sometimes people can never get along due to the culture or language. The effects of not being understanding to the society’s sensitivity were well displayed here. Sensational dramatic performances all around from Aiello, Turturro, Perez and Jackson. Funny there were references from other films as well which you can see in one of the dialogues (one would be referencing Don Corleone to Sal). Do The Right Thing exemplifies the “the importance of living together” according to DJ Brother Love Daddy, a brilliant screenplay that has universal meanings, solid performances and a wonderful soundtrack. Highly recommended for repeat viewings which makes it a classic in itself.
