"To be sure, it is worth seeing. There are times when the actors simply ring so true to memory that they stop the TV commercial, pull the plug on the "please laugh" sign. And it is in those moments that "American Graffiti" is worthy of its title."

"Not just another gangster picture, as some had feared. James Toback`s sparkling script as interpreted by director Barry Levinson and producer-star Warren Beatty is both a rare love story between equals and a portrait of a dreamer."

"This is a sumptuous work, from its unconventional title sequence of a woman dancing hard in the streets to its provocative ending with conflicting quotes from Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr . This might sound like a depressing story, but the level of performance and filmmaking is so high that Do the Right Thing becomes a most entertaining warning."
