“dis joint is based upon some fo’ real, fo’ real shit.”
so last night i was lucky enough to go to a special preview screening of this film with one of my best friends (i won a double pass) and OH MAN... i’m not even going to say a word about the ending because everyone who eventually watches this deserves to experience it without any spoilers. blackkklansman is absolutely phenomenal, incredibly hilarious and satirical, thought-provoking, captivating and ultimately powerful, but most of all it is undoubtedly necessary. i can’t stop thinking about it.
everyone in the cast gave a commendable performance, but john david washington and adam driver shined the most in my opinion. their characters, ron stallworth and flip zimmerman were such a wildly iconic duo.
spike lee really wrote and directed a true masterpiece and the legendary jordan peele really produced it. they make such a great team and i have so much respect for them both.
i truly think that everyone should experience this film at least once in their lifetime so please go out and support it once it’s out in your local cinema!!! i can wholeheartedly say that it is one of the best films of the year and of all time.
