Details

Collection of five pivotal Spike Lee films.

 

Do the Right Thing (1989) takes place on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, and charts the increasing tension between a black pizza delivery boy (Spike Lee), his Italian-American bosses, local residents and yuppie newcomers. The enmity builds inexorably to a dramatic climax.

Mo' Better Blues (1990) follows a handsome and accomplished jazz trumpeter, Bleek Gilliam (Denzel Washington), who divides his spare time between an aspiring jazz vocalist, Clarke (Cynda Williams), and Indigo (Joie Lee), a down to earth school teacher. This love triangle provides the focus for a complex interweaving of racial and gender issues.

In Jungle Fever (1991), married black architect Flipper (Wesley Snipes) begins an affair with white secretary Angie (Annabella Sciorra) from his office, causing turmoil in their social worlds.

Crooklyn (1994) is Lee's autobiographical homage to his own youth, growing up in seventies Brooklyn. Alfre Woodard stars as Carolyn Carmicheal, mother of five children and wife to an unemployed jazz musician. She has to struggle to hold the family together, and when she dies the resposibilities fall to her only daughter, Troy.

Finally, in Clockers (1995), Strike (Mekhi Phifer) is a Clocker (24-hour drug dealer) who becomes implicated in the murder of a rival after a tip off. Two cops investigate: Mazilli (John Turturro) who is looking for a quick solution and Rocco (Harvey Keitel), who is looking for the truth. When Strike's brother confesses to the shooting, Rocco decides to find the real killer.
