Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman hits you in the gut, leaves lasting impression

Shock and awe would be understating how wonderful director Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is, and it’s certainly easy to see how it performed so well with audiences at Cannes Film Festival.

Lee doesn’t shy away from showing us the nasty side of the Ku Klux Klan in this true story. In this case, rookie cop-turned-detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) decides to call the local Colorado Springs KKK chapter and schedule a meeting. But Ron himself won’t be attending — leave that up to detective Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver).

There’s chaos, police work and a story that is rich with dialogue. This movie boiled my blood, had me chuckling and even made me turn my head away from the screen. This is an important film not only for this year, but for years to come.
