'Do the Right Thing' Still Relevant Today - @SpikeLee

About a week ago I wrote an introduction to Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing.

In an interview on the CNN site, Lee said that Do the Right Thing is still relevant today.
"I think that in the United States, race is always there," he said. "It's simmering right below whatever level you want to call it and it takes an outburst for it to explode. "And Hollywood would not make 'Do the Right Thing' today. There is no flying through the air, no superheroes, you can't shoot in 3D, no explosions."
