Another Five is in the bag! The guys look back at the five films they covered of Spike Lee’s canon and wonder why he isn’t appreciated as much. They bring up films of his they didn’t cover like When the Levees Broke, Inside Man and his Netflix show She’s Gotta Have It. Then they finish it up with their rankings and the announcement of their next Five.
It’s August! It’s hot! Not as hot as it was on this one street in Brooklyn in 1989. Do the Right Thing is powerful film about the lives of those on the street from the old man looking for enough money to buy his favorite beer, to boom box carrying man of morality to the Italian pizza owners. Spike Lee crafts an incredible story full of humor, warmth and one of the greatest on-screen discussions of race in America. If you haven’t seen it you….well….need to do the right thing.
