Dance Like You Mean It Yo!


"Wake up! Wake up! Up you wake!"



Do the Right Thing is one of my favourite films. This Spike Lee joint is a thought provoking exploration of the fine balance that multi-cultural cities have to maintain to keep any kind of equilibrium. It also provides a stark cold reminder of how violence is never that far away from us and how relinquishing to it can only lead to profound pain and loss for for a community. 

Aside from the the moral tale, excellent script and brilliant casting, Do The Right Thing has the most energetic, awesome opening credits ever seen on a movie. I have always admired people who put some ooooomph into their dancing, but Rosie Peres takes it to another level and really shows us how it's done.

I am planning to use this as my exercise video everyday next week.....Who's with me?

  3. This is one of my fave films too- the opening is great, I had to warm to it though after a dubious few minutes.
