Post-O.J., Spike Lee’s brilliantly innovative meditation on America’s racial divide, Do The Right Thing, is more relevant than ever, and this deluxe three-disc set is the way to see it. Along with a breathtaking wide-screen transfer, there are fascinating bonuses: audio recollections by the film’s creative team (cinematographer Ernest Dickerson’s tales of turning budget restrictions into creative assets are particularly illuminating), a making-of documentary, and home videos director Lee took on the set. Side 5’s supplemental audio tracks can be safely avoided, however, unless you really need to hear two — yes, two — running commentaries by Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
