"Do the Right Thing!" Has it really been 20 years?


Say it aint so! Ran across this news clip celebrating the 20th anniversary of Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing."



Plot: On the hottest day of the year on a street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, everyone's hate and bigotry smolders and builds until it explodes into violence.

Love the movie, love the director.

Here's a flash or two from the (gulp) past.



Isn't there a Pizza Hut commercial out now based on this rift?


"They didn't have to kill the boy ..." Final scene



Interested in your thoughts on Lee's film.
