March 21, 2019
The contemporary elements don't necessarily trip you up too much, because you're in the middle of a period piece, and its a great balance that he strikes because we have been waiting for a return of Spike.
January 9, 2019
The filmmaker rips from the headlines, but the struggles remain the same.
September 14, 2018
There's nobody left in Hollywood making broad, sweeping, lively political melodramas like Spike Lee.
August 31, 2018
It's just about perfect in balance of tone, and it's easily Spike Lee's best film in years.
August 29, 2018
A kitchen sink and kaleidoscopic study of cultural and institutional racism in America.
August 27, 2018
What I especially love is how the movie refuses to offer up any pat or easy answers.
August 26, 2018
Spike Lee is one of the best directors of his generation. BlacKKKlansman assures him of that title
August 26, 2018
Until the closing shots of BlacKkKlansman, director and co-writer Spike Lee does more than control the rage. He refines it with riotous wit into a stiletto, and is all the more lethal for that.
August 26, 2018
BlacKkKlansman slips seamlessly from borderline-absurdist humour to all-too-real horror, conjuring an urgent blend of sociopolitical period satire and contemporary wake-up call.
August 24, 2018
...a movie that has to be reckoned with, about a subject that we seem doomed -- hopelessly -- to reckon with.
August 22, 2018
BlacKkKlansman's determination to be everything for everybody - comedy/ melodrama, wish-fulfilment fable/awful warning - proves its unexpected, unconventional master-choice.
August 22, 2018
BlacKkKlansman blends comic irony and outspoken polemic but still works very effectively as a hardboiled crime drama.
August 21, 2018
Lee's most entertaining and thought-provoking film in years.
August 19, 2018
Spike Lee isn't subtle, his is a sledgehammer approach. But being delicate wasn't the point. This is a film that needs to be seen.
August 17, 2018
Lee's motivating anger produces a unique, electrifying charge.
August 14, 2018
Stallworth recognizes that "white voice" is a seductive fiction, like many of the customs of association cherished within the K.K.K.
August 13, 2018
For all its revelations of racist rot at the core of American society, Lee also offers a clear, specific, and wondrous, if wary, view of change that's possible because, at one time and to some extent, it actually happened.
August 13, 2018
Lee would contend, I guess, that the sober approach will no longer suffice-that the age we inhabit is too drunk on its own craziness. He has a point.
August 13, 2018
An entertaining jaunt through the '70s, with some dutiful grappling over the enduring question of race in America thrown in...
August 10, 2018
This is one of his best films because he marries the anger and intensity with the restraint and poetry that he's so good at visually.
