In 1989 Spike Lee wrote and directed Do The Right Thing which, to this day is celebrated as one of the great American movies and at the time the biggest movie ever made by a black director. It tells the story of a Brooklyn neighbourhood during a heatwave, where rising tensions explodes after Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito) becomes upset that the neighbourhood Pizza shop, run by Sal (Danny Aiello), who doesn't display any black actors on his wall of fame and refuses to change it. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to other people in the neighbourhood, and tensions rise. It's a film that is as relevant today as it was in the 80s, a timeless classic.
