BlacKkKlansman ★★★★½

Being a Spike Lee virgin I didn't know what to expect from this crazy true story turned to film, but I can gladly say that BlacKkKlansman met and exceeded my expectations. Everything from the funky soundtrack to the superb cast is seriously on point for a film that tackles so much. John David Washington and Adam Driver deliver some of the best performances of the year chewing up every scene they get, and Topher Grace as David Duke is something everyone will be talking about. The story is also wildly engaging balancing comedy, drama, and overall fun perfectly. But the film doesn't shy away from its very political core. There are plenty of bashes towards the Trump administration that can sometimes be a bit distracting from it being set in the late 1970's, and the last few minutes are going to be very dividing for some viewers. But overall BlacKkKlansman was a very enjoyable film and probably one of my favorites of the year.
