Le Cinema #3: Do the Right Thing (1989)

Elvis was a hero to many but he ain’t never meant shit to me~ Public Enemy

This was on TV today.  I don’t tend to watch gritty urban dramas but I really love this film.  Whereas Crash tends to come off as Ethnic Studies for Dummies, Do the Right Thing, in spite of being nearly twenty years old now, still feels completely fresh, authentic, and current.
