BlacKkKlansman ★★★½

A skillful blend of buddy-cop comedy and striking commentary – equal parts charming, poignant, and heartbreaking. This is exactly the film America needs right now. All power to all the people.

Also, thanks to my lovely friend Sam, I got to see this at the Director's Guild of America followed by a Q&A with Spike Lee who pointed out that today marks one year since the horrific murder of Heather Heyer by white supremacists at the Charlottesville protest. Hearing that really made this hit that much harder.
