Do The Right Thing (1989) was the best film of '89 and Spike Lee's masterpiece. I recently re-watched it after reading the BFI book on it by Ed Guerro. It takes an unflinching look at race in America that is still relevant today. The audacious opening with Rosie Perez's frantic dancing to Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" is timeless. It has some great performances from Danny Aiello, Giancarlo Esposito, and John Turturro among others. It is a classic that holds up over time.
