Blindspotting

Blindspotting ★★★★½

This was a directorial debut?? What a way to start a career, out the gate running, unapologetic, electric, pulse-pounding. Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal freestyle their way through the social issues facing communities of color: police brutality, gentrification, racism. There's a lot to laugh at in this, but there's plenty of drama as well. There's a rap sequence that plays like an action scene; your hands will sweat, your heart will race and your breath will be short. It's a timely work of art that I think should be taught in school rather than Black Panther. It has such a powerful message behind it that can really start a good conversation in this country. I implore you to seek this out.
