Blindspotting

Blindspotting ★★★★

Blindspotting is a delicate blend of outlandish humour with razor-sharp social commentary. I hate to draw parallels, but where Sorry to Bother You pulled its punches was in the clarity of its message, whereas Blindspotting knows exactly what it wants to address and precisely who it is challenging. Blindspotting very much plays like a comedy however when the time comes - throws down the gaunlet for discussing contemporary turmoil involving racism, police brutality, gentrification, the judiciary system and most importantly corporate and individual identity. 2018 has offered up an array of films which ignite conversation over topics that are usually danced around but there's a good chance Blindspotting may have stolen the show, not only for it's poignant and introspective take on the world we live in, but the way in which it reprises rap to educate on the black experience is exceptional.
