I finally got to see BlacKkKlansman yesterday and I was not disappointed.
There’s always a huge sigh of relief after seeing one of Adam’s new films.
I can’t imagine giving him a bad review.
In this case however, he’s getting a rave review.
John David Washington is definitely a chip off the old block.
Denzel’s son delivers a wonderful performance as Ron Stallworth.
The film is brilliant.
Spike Lee has managed to take an unbelievable story and turned it into a pretty hard hitting film with all the social and political relevance of it’s day back in the 70’s and rammed home the fact that it is all still sadly relevant today.
Spike has managed to take, what is sometimes uncomfortable viewing, and turned it into a serious look at the issues involved and spattered it with just the right amount of humour.
You have to admit, Black man infiltrates Ku Klux Klan, is an unbelievable film pitch right?
Just when you think the film has finished, Spike delivers an ending that leaves the audience completely shocked into silence.
Another Spike Lee masterpiece.
Am I smelling Oscars?
Yes, yes I am.
This film has the potential to get nominations for best film, director, adapted screenplay, costume design, makeup, actor and supporting actor.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
