Ron Stallworth
Blackkklansman
Review by Ross Anthony

The only thing I didn't enjoy about this film was the odd noisy open with Alec Baldwin. Alec is not in the film other than that, and this intro feels like an afterthought tacked on later. Spike Lee's BLACKKLANSMAN succeeds at a difficult task - telling a true story about a deathly serious issue with grace and humor in a way that both entertains and educates.

I cringed at the hate speech, and I laughed at the film's unique way of poking fun at it. Washington and Driver have a great working chemistry, both deliver marvelously memorable performances.
