A Scene-by-Scene Breakdown of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989) with Study Questions
PS: Take notes if possible while you watch the film. I strongly suggest that you see the movie twice.
Discussion Questions for Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989)
**Please read these questions before you watch the film
1) What’s the importance of the film’s references to “heat”? In responding, consider the phrases in Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Malcolm X’s references to the racial climate or mood in 1960’s America.
2) What do you know about Radio Raheem’s favorite rap group, Public Enemy? In what way are the group’s lyrics in “Fight the Power” appropriate to the movie? What is “the Power” in the context of the film, and how does one fight it?
3) Follow the treatment of Radio Raheem throughout the film. Why is it oddly predictable that he is the character who ends up dead by the end of the film?
