BlacKkKlansman

Fight the powers that be.

Spike Lee delivers an often-hilarious, yet righteously-angry film which shines a spotlight on a tale from the ’70s, while connecting that decade’s fight to the present world.

John David Washington plays the real-life Ron Stallworth, a Black cop who infiltrated the KKK by posing as a white man on the phone.

Tweaking notorious racist jackass (and future presidential candidate) David Duke, the undercover brother dances with danger, always aware he has little support from his fellow cops.

It’s a bold, bracing film, another memorable salvo from a director never afraid to fire the big guns.
