Dir. Spike Lee | US 2018 | 135 min | 15
A major comeback for the outspoken and visionary director Spike Lee, this bitingly satirical film tells the true story of an African-American detective's mission to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.
Produced by Oscar-winning Get Out auteur Jordan Peele, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman tells the astonishing true story of one of the riskiest undercover investigations in American history — an improbable early ’70s case in which African-American police detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel’s son) applied for and was ultimately granted membership to the Ku Klux Klan.
Posing as a racist extremist over the telephone, Stallworth infiltrates the KKK’s inner circle, even communicating with David Duke himself (played with poisonous relish by Topher Grace), but has his colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) pretend to be him for face-to-face meetings – and in so doing, illustrates the profound absurdities at the heart of the group’s hateful ethos.
