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 incendiary 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. Reaching a violent climax, DO THE RIGHT THING was also the calling card for Lee, a film that would assure his place amongst the most important filmmakers of his generation.
