Thomas’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Blindspotting” is a social commentary on topics such as race relations, prejudices, identity, police violence, and gentrification, as well as a personal love letter to Oakland. And besides all that, it is also a very entertaining movie.
The film was written and produced by Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, who also play the protagonists, and damn, both their performances are amazing. Especially their chemistry with each other is incredible. You can really see that they are close friends in real life.
“Blindspotting” deals with heavy topics and has several very intense scenes that will make you hold your breath, but there are also really funny scenes. I was especially impressed by the dialogs and the rap scenes. Technical aspects such as cinematography and editing were also really good.
Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal have a clear message that is very important to them and they tell it in an honest, uncompromising, but also very entertaining way. I am deeply impressed.
