Clockers Jungle Fever Do The Right Thing Film Poster


A Spike Lee triple bill. 'Clockers' is a hard-hitting film with a very disturbing opening credits sequence. Strike (Mekhi Phifer) is a Clocker (24-hour drug dealer) who becomes implicated in the murder of a rival after a tip off. Two cops investigate, Mazilli (John Turturro - looking for a quick solution) and Rocco (Harvey Keitel - looking for the truth). When Strike's brother confesses to the shooting, Rocco decides to find the real killer. In 'Jungle Fever', a married black architect (Wesley Snipes) begins an affair with a white temporary secretary (Annabella Sciorra) from his office, causing turmoil in their social worlds. Spike Lee plays Snipes' best friend Cyrus, who counsels against succumbing to the temptation of 'jungle fever'. Whilst 'Do the Right Thing' (Lee's study of racial tensions) takes place on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York. The film charts the increasing tension between a black pizza delivery boy (Lee) and his Italian bosses, the local folk and yuppy newcomers, and builds inexorably to a violent confrontation.
