Official Trailer for Spike Lee's Award-Winning Film 'Do the Right Thing'

"And that's the double truth, Ruth!" Have you watched Spike Lee's Oscar-nominated Brooklyn masterpiece? Do the Right Thing was released on June 30th in 1989 and it still stands strong as one of Lee's best films. Set in NYC's Bed-Stuy over the course of a single day, the easygoing interactions of a cast of unforgettable characters—Da Mayor, Mother Sister, Mister Señor Love Daddy, Tina, Sweet Dick Willie, Buggin Out, Radio Raheem, Sal, Pino, Vito, and Lee’s Mookie among them—give way to heated confrontations as tensions rise along racial fault lines, ultimately exploding into violence. The film originally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival back in 1989. It stars Spike Lee, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, John Turturro, Paul Benjamin, Frankie Faison, Robin Harris, Joie Lee, and Bill Nunn as Radio Raheem. I watched this film in a cinema for the first time last year and it blew me away.
