Do the Right Thing
Cinema can be a powerful mirror for society. In 1989 Spike Lee delivered a masterpiece in DO THE RIGHT THING. A movie about racism where nobody is right, DO THE RIGHT THING is our next Rialto Recommends selection. Smart, vibrant, and urgent without being didactic, Do the Right Thing is one of Spike Lee's most fully realized efforts -- and one of the most important films of the 1980s. The Los Angeles Times raved "Do the Right Thing is complex, bravura movie making. It is also hugely entertaining, since fortunately for us, Lee's seditious method is to use humor to carry his biting message." While the Chicago Reader said "A powerful and persuasive look at an ethnic community and what makes it tick -- funky, entertaining, packed with insight, and political in the best, most responsible sense." And the New York Times says "In all of the earnest, solemn, humorless discussions about the social and political implications of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, an essential fact tends to be overlooked: it is one terrific movie."
