Da 5 Bloods

feels like the spiritual successor to BlacKkKlansman, although it feels far less mature and far more contrived and overdone. many moments of jarring editing and... 2 and a half hours, really? nevertheless, it’s unfiltered Spike Lee and that’s always a good thing. with a few less subplots and a tighter runtime, and we have another great Spike Lee joint, because there are some powerful scenes (Paul monologuing in the jungle) and some gorgeous shots of the Vietnamese landscape, naturally.
