BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman ★★★★½

Spike Lee's best film in easily at least 12 years, it's nice to see him really return to form. Like Spielberg's The Post, Lee is using an incident based on a true story to directly comment on events today, even more brazenly than Spielberg chose to do so. The style is all still Lee's. Seeing his signature double dolly shot use in BlacKKKlansman made me feel like I wanted to cheer, I loved seeing his "Spike Lee" flourishes again in a good Spike Lee movie. John David Washington should do his father proud, and Adam Driver is also memorable. Some may not not like the way Lee chose to end the film, but I think it adds some powerful images and thoughts to go out on.
