Do The Right Thing (1989)

Do The Right Thing (59:57) Rated R for some filthy words that will cause your children to riot.

Do The Right Thing 2

T100P podcast #109 is ageless and urgent. Spike Lee‘s finest film stars himself with a tremendous cast of exuberant character actors. The passion, the energy, the (unfortunately) timely subject matter. This is a special way to end the ’80s. Get some Sparkplug Coffee and come hear our low-down on an outstanding motion picture.
