BlacKkKlansman ★★★

This is America...still.

Doesn't quite hold up as well on rewatch. Sure the message is just as relevant and powerful, but there were so many underdeveloped characters. I wish Spike had gone more into Adam Driver's Jewish character's background, and I frankly thought that even Washington's, Ron Stallworth was played a bit safe. Something I had some concern with on first watch was that it lacked in comparison to Spike's magnum opus, Do the Right Thing. This second viewing cements my disappointment in playing it rather safe and broad, not necessarily digging deep into provocative and controversial territory. If only the whole film was more in line with its final 10 minutes.

Lee, liked these reviews
