» Do The Right Thing
Director Spike Lee dives head-first into a maelstrom of racial and social ills, using as his springboard the hottest day of the year on one block in Brooklyn, NY. Three businesses dominate the block: a storefront radio station, where a smooth-talkin' DJ (Samuel L. Jackson) spins the platters that matter; a convenience store owned by a Korean couple; and Sal's Famous Pizzeria, the only white-operated business in the neighborhood. Sal (Danny Aiello) serves up slices with his two sons, genial Vito (Richard Edson) and angry Pino (John Turturro). Sal has one black employee, Mookie (Spike Lee), who wants to "get paid" but feels trapped. Two of Mookie's best friends are Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn), a monolith of a man who rarely speaks, preferring to blast his massive boom box; and Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito). When Buggin' Out notes that Sal's "Wall of Fame," a photo gallery of famous Italian-Americans, includes no people of color, he eventually demands a neighborhood boycott, on a day when tensions are already running high, that incurs explosive consequences. A Spike Lee joint. "Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It's a tale of good and evil." (1989)

The stage is set for sword fights, monsters, and tortures - but will Grandpa be allowed to finish telling the story with all these kissy bits? Directed by Rob Reiner. "Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya!..." (1987)
