Blindspotting ★★★★½

A culturally relevant film about race issues that should have had all the awards attention. 

While Blindspotting deals with identity crises and the effects of trauma, elevated by affecting monologues and nightmarish visuals, it’s also a powerful illustration of the changing times in Oakland; reminiscent of how Widows discusses the black community in Chicago. Oakland is a city where the people who helped it grow are being pushed out, just like its name sake oaks were chopped down. A city where white people are moving into black spaces and treating them like they no longer belong. Treating them like monsters in their own city. It has so much to say and does so with the perfect balance of being issue heavy and a buddy comedy.
