Clockers (1995):
A gritty, realistic adaptation of Richard Price's best-selling novel, director Spike Lee examines the violent world of urban drug dealing through the eyes of Strike (Mekhi Phifer), a 19-year-old "clocker," short for round-the-clock pusher. Strike agrees to kill a fellow employee of his boss Rodney Little (Delroy Lindo), an influential, popular drug lord. But when the hit goes down, it is Strike's moral, law-abiding brother Victor (Isaiah Washington) who confesses, shocking everyone. The detective assigned to the case, Rocco Klein (Harvey Keitel), doesn't believe Victor - the more that Klein, along with others in Strike's life, start putting the heat on, the more the clocker finds himself up against the wall. The question is: Who is the real killer?

Do The Right Thing (1989): On one block in the Brooklyn district of Bedford-Stuyvesant, the story follows the events which take place on one very hot summer day. Events which would normally go un-noticed but because of the fierce heat are magnified to dangerous proportions, revealing the under-belly of racism.

Jungle Fever (1991): Spike Lee's 1991 story about an interracial relationship and its consequences on the lives and communities of the lovers (Wesley Snipes, Annabella Sciorra) is one of his most captivating and focused films. Snipes and Sciorra are very good as individuals trying to reach beyond the limits imposed upon them for reasons of race, tradition, sexism, and such.

Lee makes an interesting and subtle case that they are driven to one another out of frustration with social obstacles as well as pure attraction--but is that enough for love to survive?

John Turturro is featured in a subplot as an Italian American who grows attracted to a black woman and takes heat from his numbskull buddies.

Crooklyn (1994): Make yourself at home with the Carmichael family as they experience one very special summer in their Brooklyn neighborhood that they've affectionately nicknamed "Crooklyn". Renowned director Spike Lee fashions a bold, flavorful picture of family life that nominee Alfre Woodard stars as Carolyn, a loving, but fiercely independent mother who along with her musician husband Woody struggles to raise her family in difficult but often wonderful circumstances. Complemented by an energizing, vintage R & B soundtrack, this tender, colorful film is fitting tribute to an American family.

Mo' Better Blues (1990): Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington gives a riveting performance in Spike Lee's breathtaking film on music and love.

Talented trumpeter Bleek Gilliam (Washington) is obsessed by his music and indecisive about his girlfriends Indigo (Joie Lee) and Clarke (Cynda Williams). But when he is forced to come to the aid of his manager and childhood friend (Spike Lee), Bleek finds his world more fragile than he ever imagined.

Stunning cinematography, a rousing score and superlative performances come together in this unforgettable feast for the senses.
