It's the hottest day of the year in Brooklyn, and tensions are rising in the ghetto, where the only businesses are a Korean grocery and Sal's Pizzeria. Mookie, Sal's delivery boy, always manages to be at the centre of the action. Spike Lee's provocative slice of contemporary New York street life was a sensation upon its release, with its dazzlingly confident visual style and razor-sharp observations of the always contentious race relations in the ultimate American melting pot. DO THE RIGHT THING was also a calling card for Lee; it was the film that assured his place amongst the most important directors of his generation.
