Spike Lee's very, very perceptive movie on race relations. Everything that Lee displays in the first half of the picture pays off brilliantly in the second half of it. No one really does "the right thing," and that's why it works so well. It's easy to see why it shook the world, then and now.
Da Mayor is the voice of reason in the movie, everyone else acts like a jerk at some point.
This really touched me; now, i think its ok if you dont like this movie, no one HAS TO like anything, but people putting hate in their comments make me feel they just didnt hear anything; maybe they are way too self-opinionated people and need to hear more different ideas.
