Crash Course: Do the Right Thing


Mainstream American films don’t often tackle race and racism head-on, and when they do, they often end up trying to find easy answers. Which makes films like Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing all the more powerful. It’s an intimate portrait of a Brooklyn neighborhood dealing with rising tensions on the hottest day of the year. It's also fun, funny, and full of life. In this episode of Crash Course Film Criticism, Michael Aranda walks us through Do The Right Thing! *** Check out all 15 films we'll be talking about below!!! Citizen Kane Aliens Where Are My Children?
