  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Mamma mia quanto spacchi i coglioni, Spike.

  2. Elephants_Gerald's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    With each viewing, this movie only gets more complicated, sadder, & yet more humming, crawling out of its skin with ideas. Lee spends 90 min basking you in human behavior & relationships, then drops a distressing conflict into the mix. In a political climate where every answer is easy and the other side are evil, it's now even more painful to watch a film that seems to say "the right thing" isn't so easy to define.

  3. agostinellips's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    As said here before, this should have won the Oscar. That's the double truth, Ruth! Driving Miss Daisy, HAH!

  4. Barrett.'s rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    28 years since this was released yet still as pertinent. A timeless film... for the wrong reasons.

  5. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

  6. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    A stylish, complicated, engaging illustration of the nuances of class, age, and race differences in America. One of the standout qualities to me is the way that, in spite of being vignette based, the movie manages to work at a basic level by using just about every vignette to explore a clash between two or three different attitudes, detailing the characters at the same time. It's a phenomenal movie.

  7. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Tan solo escuchando cómo suenan las cosas en esta película uno debería entender claramente cuál es el grado en el que impacta lo que se está contando. La música estalla por los autoparlantes, el agua salpica cual catarata en las calles, las sirenas, los disparos, las ventanas que destrozan. Desde el baile que abre hasta las citas de Malcolm X y M.L King que la cierran, todo en esta película es alto, claro y ruidoso.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Une des meilleures œuvres du réalisateur, parmi les plus notables de l'année 1989... www.cinefiches.com

  11. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Gets an extra star for the music. Spike tries to have his cake and eat it too. He does the wrong thing, and then presents the philosophies of Malcolm X and MLK for you to decide. Of course, as he well knows, Malcolm X's philosophies continued to evolve as time went on. Thank god for Robin Harris.

  12. Vasco Bação's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Dave Kehr's valid point about the film's dishonest finale (the unrealistic riot on Sal's pizzeria following the police killing doesn't escalate or hurt anybody so that the audience doesn't have to deal with those consequences) is the only thing preventing me from giving this otherwise thoughtful, aesthetically exhilarating and continually important film its five stars.

  13. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

  14. José Neves's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    rewatched. A great example of an urban symphony, in a sense an heir of King Vidor's "Street Scene," a theatrical occupation of a specific décor and of a strict time, socially on the fringe of Woody Allen's usual social stratum. The visual delirium, image and set design, is rare and of an accurate taste - mostly for the recent North-American cinema - which grand finale is a conceptual moment of ideologic discussion.

  16. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

  17. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    This film is just bursting with talent, passion and originality! Spike Lee is just one of those filmmakers who puts such an unique stamp on all of his films. I truly love this movie. Many of the themes and issues that it touches upon are still relevant today. "Do The Right Thing" is one of my favorite films of all time. This is an iconic and brilliant film that hasn't aged a day!

  18. AALC's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Good story, cinematography, soundrack!

  19. ammar's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

  20. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Pur essendo il tema della discriminazione razziale visto e stravisto, il film riesce egregiamente ad arrangiarlo in modo interessante, senza mai sbilanciarsi effettivamente, rimanendo assolutamente super partes. La questione della multiculturalità e delle tensioni ad essa associate viene affrontata in modo tale da affidare allo spettatore il verdetto su quella che in effetti sia la "cosa giusta" da fare. Da vedere.

  21. Rodrigo Morais's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Easily Spike Lee's best work till date. Set in the heart of the city of Brooklyn, Lee uses the greek tragedy formula to tell the story about a "normal" day in the suburbs of the Big Apple.

  22. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    (...)Nur ganz wenige Filme bleiben hängen! Nur ganz, ganz wenige Filme dringen wirklich ins Innerste vor! Als ich mir zum ersten Mal Do The Right Thing von Spike Lee im Videodrom auf VHS auslieh, war ich zu Tränen gerührt! Spike Lee hatte für mich das Unmögliche geschafft: Ein Film über Rassismus, der Empathie zu allen seinen Figuren aufbaut.(...)

  23. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    A film about a lot of people just plain pissed off. In truth in some way a foreshadowing of the LA riots, Spike Lee had the vision to know something was on the horizon and portrays it in this film. The film has a load of personality and every person is a memorable character, but in a way that's the weakness of the film that portrays most of these characters one dimensional. Regardless still essential cult viewing.

  24. Le temps perdu's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Excellent mix of comedy and tragedy, nice soundtrack, one of the best impressions of a hot summer's day.
