So BlacKkKlansman is directed by #spikelee
& is set in 70s based on the crazy real events and issues which are still relevant to this date. It pits crusading cops against white supremacists and mirrors the contemporary struggles with civil rights and inequality. I think it's Lee's finest work yet and what is even more amazing is that how he also finds time for the satisfying hilarity of a black police officer making a fool of the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
The movie chronicles the tale of how Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel's son) successfully infiltrated the Colorado Springs, Colorado, chapter of the KKK.
) has an impressive charisma as the first black cop in town, who initially gets assigned to the records room to pull paperwork for white officers but finally gets his chance when he's sent undercover at a speech by Black Panther leader Kwame Ture (Corey Hawkins) & meets cop-detesting Patrice (#lauraharrier
), an activist and president of the local college’s Black Student Union.
And at the same time, the KKK is on the recruitment trail in an effort to go more mainstream . Ron sees a classified ad to join and calls the “organization” on a whim; when they take a liking to him, thinking he’s a white guy, he applies to be a member (and accidentally uses his real name). Since his showing up to a KKK meeting isn’t the best idea, Ron teams up with fellow cop Flip Zimmerman (#adamdriver
), who poses as the in-person “Ron Stallworth” embedded among the racist extremists to find out their villainous plans.
Washington and Driver have a solid buddy-cop chemistry as both their characters navigate fascinating arcs. Ron has to go through racial discrimination & hate speech while fostering a phone relationship with Duke, but also keep his job secret from love interest Patrice & Flip, who has passed as white all his life, comes to terms with his own Jewish heritage at the same time he's hiding it within a group that despises his people.
is a real and effective commentary on right now, but it's also a celebration of brotherhood , It is one of the best as well as one of my favourite movies of 2018, 10/10 .
