Haunting, humorous, and thought provoking in equal measure.

Spike Lee is an absolutely great filmmaker.

The chemistry between Washington and Driver is essential to maintaining the rythm of the film persistent and entertaining in a constant shift between crime and comedy. [Full review in Spanish]

Ten years ago, during our optimistic delusions of a post-racial America, we might have naively called such a movie over-the-top. But arriving the same week as an actual white-nationalist rally on the National Mall, it's horrifically spot-on.

BlacKkKlansman is Spike Lee's most significant film since Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X.
July 24, 2020
It's frighteningly timely and timeless, yes, but Lee knows how to approach it like a comedy that stands on its middle fingers. Power to the people indeed.

Lee's joint is undoubtedly a raging inferno of all too relevant social commentary. It's a powerhouse spine-tingler which proactively manages to kick racism in the balls at brute force.
July 18, 2020
The film's central concerns - hateful rhetoric dressed up as "pride," prejudiced cops abusing their power - feel viscerally relevant.
July 9, 2020
The great revelation of Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman is how imagery can be used as powerful motivators, cultivating the way people feel and act.
July 8, 2020
BlacKkKlansman is a film with a great cast, but the way director Spike Lee decided to force his message makes the movie feel heavy-handed and oddly redundant in parts.
July 5, 2020
It makes conscience on how little humanity has evolved since the 70's. [Full review in Spanish]
June 27, 2020
This film is a captivating, provocative, hilarious thing, with a refined aesthetic, and a police plot that illustrates, as a satire, sociopolitical parables about racial injustices. [Full review in Spanish]

BlacKkKlansman is a story of bravery, audaciousness, hypocrisy, and history -- all pulled together in something that feels horribly, inescapably current.
June 1, 2020
John David Washington is... an up-and-coming talent worth keeping an eye on.
May 29, 2020
Due in no small part to the daily horrors of the Trump presidency, Lee seems to have recaptured that spark that gave us the kind of scathingly frank commentary coupled with an intimate African American perspective invocative of Do the Right Thing
March 19, 2020
BlacKkKlansman is one of those magical movies where the filmmaker takes aim at what a less ambitious storyteller would say is too many targets, hitting each and every one of them with the precision of a career assassin.
January 21, 2020
In Washington and Driver, Lee finds two actors who understand his methods and deliver exceptional performances.
January 15, 2020
There's the sense that Lee is seeing our present reality not as a reason to give up hope but to remind Americans of the stakes, to rally them to take back their country from those who would make it 1953 again.
January 10, 2020
Spike Lee is back and it's good to see him ride this new wave of black cinema, especially since he was responsible for the last one.
