BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman ★★★½

Some of the filmmaking choices felt at odds with what it was trying to say and what it was trying to be. At times it felt like it was trying to draw connections between the Student Group and the Klan, but then it would draw a sharp contrast directly after. I respect a lot of the bluntness, but I feel that it also played it a bit too vague and safe in order to feel more natural—something that hinders it's nature as a film that wants to SAY something. There's definitely a lot of good ideas and commentary here that a really enjoyed, but the film never really took and ran with them in ways that made them feel fulfilling.

I don't know if this review even makes sense, but I agree with a lot of the reviews I've read from people who rated it similarly
