Lee accomplishes something truly incredible with this latest 'joint.' He deftly balances a tone of comedy, reality, seriousness and anger in one of 2018's best.
What this all does is create tension and Lee does it masterfully. Lee's love of the cinema really shines through with this film. There's choices he makes that are just exquisite. Showing Belafonte tell tales of racist actions courtesy of D.W. Griffith's "The Birth of a Nation" against a Klan initiation where they revere Griffith's film is powerful!
I can't stop praising Lee's boldness as "BlacKkKlansman" is truly so visceral, fun, and infuriating all at once.
