One of the best movies of 1989 and the best work ever from Spike Lee.The film takes place in a very hot summer day in Brooklyn. A conflict is between the owners of a pizza shop who are italians and their customers who are African-American. This movie is not about the violence which to come, but the people who lived in these neighbor. One scene when Ossie Davis told Lee's character Mookie,"Always Do the Right Thing." That message is fresh thoughout then film, even towards the end when Mookie did something that started the riot. The ending is heartbreaking, but at the sametime it had a hopeful message. A fine line was drawn between those who like it including me and those who hated it. No matter what point of view, you'll understand the true meaning of this movie. One of the best movies ever on race relations.
