BlacKkKlansman Rated 15


Dir. Spike Lee. USA, 2018. 2h 15m. Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Laura Harrier, Alec Baldwin, Ryan Eggold, Isiah Whitlock Jr.

A black Colorado policeman infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan by posing as a potential Klansman on the phone and sends his white colleague undercover. Spike Lee’s latest joint pays homage to 1970s blacksploitation films while satirising racial prejudice in Trump’s America.

‘Lee does something quite remarkable throughout. The film could easily have been a fun escapade but the director throughout makes comments on the present day American political divide with ironic jokes.’ ★★★★★ Kaleem Aftab, The Independent

‘Fiery, fiercely funny takedown of institutional racism…Lee’s most entertaining and thought-provoking film in years.’ ★★★★ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
