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

    I think if this was made today it would be protested for being too anti-black. A wonderful portrayal of urbanism.

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

    Giancarlo Esposito steals the show.

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

    I feel conflicted and annoyed, while completely moved and blown away. I find it funny how a movie about such a black and white problem, ideologically, can make you stutter at the same time you're screaming your lungs out. That being said, Lee preaches one philosophy, shows its reality and still, inside the famous flaming sal's, shaking the hand of someone that doesn't preach the same he says: i did the right thing.

  4. Marach Adipalin's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    LOVE-HATE. That is who we are. Those who only choose either one of them ain't doing the right thing.

  5. Hélène Musc's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

  6. sabrina's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    A theatrical take on race-relations in 80's New York. Buoyant, charismatic characters, siccc low angle shots (esp of smiley), and great music. A necessary, but ultimately uncomfortable dialogue in an almost animated way. Best drama i've seen in a while. xx.

  8. Bob's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    It sets the viewer in a late 80s Brooklyn, soaked with summer heat and accompanied with soft jazz. But the characters are the ones that place this as a classic. Their prejudicial but innocent insults bring a harmony into chaos - until the ending when the plot takes darker direction. Banality of hatred and divisions it creates, leaves many doors closed and lives ruined - and it's presented with one powerful conclusion

  9. lbunuel's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    The best analysis of class and race discrepancies in the age of multiculturalism ever put on screen. While many filmmakers are proud of their useless ambiguities, the questions here are urgent and really force us to reconsider what we thought we knew. This is Spike Lee's timeless masterpiece, and fuck Wenders for giving the Palm D'Or to Soderbergh instead of this. What a stupid choice.

  11. tri ...'s rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    Violence ends by defeating itself

  12. FCC 86's rating of the film Do the Right Thing

    "Doctor, those that'll tell don't know, and those that know won't tell"

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

    Colorful and with high-tempo it is alright. But how does this make me rethink America or understand even Brooklyn ? Idiots annoying other idiots and the thing resulting in a horrible accident. So what ? Why is it so anecdotic ? It should not be. I am afraid that the public and critics have been somehow patronizing this one. Even the heated dialogues are artificial. Tarantino does it better. Not really inspirational.

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

    Mamma mia quanto spacchi i coglioni, Spike.

  17. 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.

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

    Spike Lee is mostly known for making films that are confrontational and aggressive, showing some of humanity’s worst in order to make a point and he certainly nailed it with Do The Right Thing. Not only is it artistically bae, with its lush colors and sharp cinematography, but he got his point across that nothing good comes from hatred and prejudice.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.
