BlacKkKlansman ★★★★½

Lee's latest joint is unwavering and unignorable; it will leave you speechless. An exhilarating, uncompromising and intrepid piece of filmmaking as impeccably-crafted as it is vital, BlacKkKlansman is not afraid to ask uncomfortable questions that encourage us to face the pressing and urgent issues of our times. Set in the 70s but rooted in the present, a trait emphasised by a concluding montage sequence that should be singed in your mind forevermore, I implore each and every one of you to seek out BlacKkKlansman and listen to its message: be angry, be saddened, be shaken but don't be still. This is a fight for us all. With the American flag flipped and fading in the final moments of the film, the message is clear that in order to save the nation (and the world), we must unite: be ready for change, and register to vote.
