With a new movie that jolts audiences with the same passion as Do The Right Thing, Spike Lee proves he is still one of America’s best filmmakers. Set in the early 1970s Colorado, it is based on the true story of Ron Stallworth, a black police detective (John David Washington) who goes undercover to investigate the KKK by applying for membership. While tricking the local leader over the phone, Stallworth enlists a fellow cop (Adam Driver) to poses as the detective in the den of hate and incompetence. BlacKkKlansman is a terrific detective movie, but it soars with its laser sharp depiction of racism and the damage it continues to inflict.

“It is worth pausing to admire its sheer, dazzling craft, the deftness of its shifts – from humorous to horrific, from blaxploitation to Classical Hollywood and back again.” A.O. Scott, NY Times. A NY Times Critics pick
