Do the Right Thing

Visible crew/equipment: When Mookie throws the trash can through Sal's window, the reverse shot from inside the restaurant reveals the main camera, in the lower left portion of the screen, moving in towards the window as it's smashed.


Trivia: There is a scene where the camera slowly pans, facing the floor of a grocery store, until we see a pile of newspapers waiting to be sold with the headlines describe a heat wave invading the city. This shot reportedly took weeks to film to get the proper lighting.

Allister Cooper, 2011

Buggin' Out: Yo, Mookie.
Mookie: What?
Buggin' Out: Stay Black.

Sal: The fuck is wrong with you? This ain't about money. I could give a fuck about money. You see this fucking place? I built this fucking place with my bare fucking hands. Every light socket, every piece of tile - me, with these fucking hands.

Mother Sister: Good morning.
Da Mayor: Is it a good morning?
Mother Sister: Yes, indeed. You almost got yourself killed last night.
Da Mayor: I've done that before. Where did you sleep?
Mother Sister: I didn't.
Da Mayor: Hope the block is still standing.
Mother Sister: We're still standing.
