BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman (15)

Director Spike lee is back on top form with this funny but deadly serious true story.  It’s the early 1970s. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs police department and, in an attempt to make his mark, sets out to expose the local branch of the Ku Klux Klan. He recruits his Jewish colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to go undercover and, together, take down the organisation as it attempts to sanitise its racist and hate-filled rhetoric.

And the critics say…
“A masterful tension of “I’m going to make you laugh, and I’m also going to make you feel really weird and uneasy”.
Katie Walsh, What the flick?
“Lee shifts from silly spoof to dramatic chill in a heartbeat. As an entertainment that milks its audience’s outrage against racism, BlacKkKlansman works exceedingly well.”
Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
“It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years, from composer Terence Blanchard… It’s a Spike Lee joint that is not to be missed.”
Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
BlacKkKlansman slips seamlessly from borderline-absurdist humour to all-too-real horror, conjuring an urgent blend of sociopolitical period satire and contemporary wake-up call.”
