BlacKkKlansman ★★★

I’m very disappointed. Maybe this is because Do the Right Thing had the perfect balance of entertainment  & the deep themes of racism and I expected that same level of quality from BlacKkKlansman. However, this one fails to do that on every level. But as usual, Adam Driver and John David Washington are fun to watch and Spike Lee’s direction is as energetic as ever, I just found myself laughing at its ridiculousness more than feeling like shit about this evil world. Plus, the ending felt forced and didn’t fit with the tone of the rest of the film at all (at least to me). I don’t know, maybe I’m just being too nit picky or had way too high of expectations going in, but this was quite the disappointment.
