BlacKkKlansman ★★★½

An all round solid film with creative writing and sharp editing. Does a good job at containing and encapsulating a time in the past while also giving us something to think about as we leave the theater in regards to our modern world and how we live in it now. Probably the most powerful ending I've seen this year. Those clips aren't easy to watch (even having seen them before) but Lee seems to understand the fact sometimes shock is necessary to get the point across. It brought me to tears, more than that it reminded me why it's so important that I as a white person amplify black voices and issues that too many people are trying to discredit as problems of the past.
