    1 thought on “Do the Right Thing: A Spike Lee Joint”

    1. First, this is a solid screenplay for a great movie. This script acted more like a blueprint with extra dialogue added on set. What makes this book so enjoyable is Spike Lee's journal. He explains how the ideas became the film and the production and casting meetings that went into its development. Since this ended up being his breakout movie, it is great to read the artist's thoughts as that project was developed.

    2. This book is a journal kept by Spike while writing "Do the right Thing." Very fascinating to get such an in depth look at one man's thought process from idea to screen.

    3. SAVORING SPIKE'S 'JOINT'.A special film deserves special attention. This book contains Spike Lee's extensive journal which gives a fascinating account of the promotion of his earlier "School Daze" flick and the preparation for the making of "Do the Right Thing" plus production notes for the latter; altogether running some 100 pages of insight into the craft of filmmaking.There are also 30 pages of black and white Bill Lee photos of on location shooting with detailed comments by the various parti [...]

    4. You CANNOT even imagine how happy I was when this book arrived at my doorstep! Do the Right Thing is such an amazing movie - and it only seems right that this coffee-table book be used to celebrate it accomplishments. Right off the back, this book is so entertaining because it features dialogue between all of the major actors/directors/producers of the film - and they don't always agree on what happened on the set! The back-and-forth between them make the book easy to read and hilarious. As soon [...]

    5. A really good “coffee table book”. Lots of great big glossy stills (photos) from the film. Besides the great photos one of the best parts of the book is the "Oral History by Jason Matloff" featuring pretty much everyone from the film, cast & crew, involved in the classic film. Also included in the book a copy of the handwritten screenplay by Spike Lee. I didn’t think it would be, but reading the script to a film I know all so well was strangely compelling. If you are a fan of the class [...]

    6. ‘Do the Right Thing’ is my FAVORITE “Spike Lee Joint”. Don’t know why it took me so long to get this book, but it did. Probably because I owned, and poured over all of the extras on the 2 Disc DVD. What more could I learn right? Turns out a lot more. Yes the DVD was very detailed, but much insight is to be gained in this book mostly curated from his journals while making DTRT. For most of all of his early films, Spike Lee published an accompanying book. This was also mostly before DVDs [...]

    7. This large coffee-table type book consists of a 40 page oral history on the making of the film (with much of the cast and crew participating), a photo recap of the film, behind the scenes photos, and a reproduction Spike's handwritten script.It's put together very well and the photos are beautiful, I just wish the oral history had been longer/more in-depth. Any behind the scenes film book now has to compete with Jan Stuart's "The Nashville Chronicles" for me, and this one just isn't quite as sol [...]

    8. A volume that includes the shooting script and production notes for one of the most important American films of the past thirty years. It is striking how many of the concerns about racial antagonism in America that inspired the film's narrative remain immediate now.

    9. Essential reading for anyone who loves movies. Only wish it was longer. Now I have to catch up with Lee's She's Gotta Have It and School Daze journals.
