This week's 'Movie Of The Week' is Spike Lee's 'Do The Right Thing'. This pizza-parlour brawler is a clear metaphor for American class struggles and race relations in the 80's that are still very relevant today. Definitely worth a watch.
Salvatore "Sal" Fragione (Danny Aiello) is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria's Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. Buggin' Out believes a pizzeria in a black neighborhood should showcase black actors, but Sal disagrees. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin' Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise.
