BlacKkKlansman ★★★★

Okay two stories, both kind of wild:

#1: my boyfriend (who is black) has an aunt who is a former member of the KKK, and only left like two years ago when it got "too extreme". This was all while she knew, and occasionally took care of her black, gay nephew (I think he would have loved this all too much.)

#2: While watching this in the theater, during the clip montage at the end of the film, my entire theater, I shit you not, started chanting "FUCK YOU TRUMP!" It's probably one of the funniest things I've seen all year.

I totally paid to watch spike Lee preach and scream at me, and I got what I paid for.

The parallels between then and now are so fucking uncanny, even if the movie odviously leaned into that aspect.

Wildly entertaining and scary as all fuck at the same time, this movie is the complete opposite of subtle, but deserves to be watched.
