BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman ★★★

An enjoyable watch, but it was really tonally inconsistent for me. The begging felt like it had some real stakes behind it with the undercover operations and the amazingly filmed black power meeting, but then it really started to meander and lose me. I didn't really think the the comedy bits played quite right with the characters the we're lampooning. It made the KKK feel like likeable idiots on occasion and not like the terrorist murderers they were by the end of the movie. It also sort of lost all the tension in the middle and seemed a little sloppy for a while. And then ending with such a stone serious bit about white power movements today just felt at odds with all playing it for laughs earlier.
