BlacKkKlansman ★★★½

It’s a Spike Lee joint, that’s for sure. For better and for worse. Mostly for better; he’s unlikely to ever make another film as singular as Do The Right Thing, but this is about as close as it comes. That’s even accounting for its unsubtle allegory for America’s contemporary far-right problem. And the fact that its plot, on closer inspection, doesn’t make a lick of sense.
