The second movie on our list was Do The Right Thing. Written and directed by Spike Lee, it focuses on life in New York(most of Lee's movies do). This particular story is set in a Brooklyn neighborhood where it seems like no one can stand one another. Tension is especially high on one particularly hot day. The boiling point is shocking and graphic. The message is violence is never the answer though. Just makes things so much worse. We noticed the movie was done very much like a play. It is very obvious when once scene ended and the other began. A interesting film. Glad I finally saw it fully.
