1989 ****1/2 120 mins.
Spike Lee's most famous film, Do the Right Thing has a style all its own. It's irresistable. My only complaint is that it's a bit too long; 20 minutes shorter and it would have been five stars. It's the hottest day of the year, and everybody's tempers are rising to a boil on a street in Brooklyn. Utterly unforgettable.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 1.85:1
