Spike Lee's most powerful and most provocative 'joint' brings racial tension to the boil over one stifling day in New York's Bed-Stuy neighbourhood. Centring around Danny Aiello's proudly Italian pizza parlour, the eclectic denizens - played by Rosie Perez, Bill Nunn, John Turturro, Giancarlo Esposito, Martin Lawrence, Samuel L Jackson and Lee himself - air grievances and trade jibes until someone takes it all too far. In your face from the moment Public Enemy assault your eardrums over the opening credits. Fight the power.
