BlacKkKlansman ★★★★

Perhaps Spike's broadest and most well layered joint. John David Washington and Adam Driver were wholly believable and subtly comedic, the entire cast were wonderful, but those two really stuck out. We began the film with Alec Baldwin as Dr. Kennebrew Beauregard practicing an absurd racist presentation. That got my audience laughing uncomfortably, and those laughs did peter out for brief stints, but came back consistently and near the end were almost the loudest this year. The running gag culminates in one of the most memorable telephone calls in the history of cinema.

Spike brought back the cut-repeat for a specific shot that was extra satisfying, his patent conveyor belt shot turns up in a moment of horror, this is Spike's best effort in quite some time. Go see it, it's some "fo' real, fo' real shit.
