BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman ★★★

Think the heavy-handedness in this wasn't a problem, rather it was the film's biggest strength — it needed to show it all without sugarcoating it. My biggest issue was the use of comedy — consistently awkward, and not in a good way; and I felt it took away from some scenes that really should have been powerful.

Blakkklansman doesn't really say anything new; it puts a mirror to the face of the American society, and sometimes that's just enough to ignite a fire. Unfortunately for me, while I enjoyed it, I won't be thinking about it because in the end, it was nothing special.
