Blindspotting ★★★★½

This is such a memorable and thought-provoking film. Blindspotting is terrifying, intense, and maddening. Besides that, it’s also hilarious, sweet, and poetic. Completely excellent. Diggs and Casal were phenomenal, pulling off these complex characters that were written so well. Carlos López Estrada was such an interesting filmmaker as well; there’s some impressive shots and he obviously knew what he was doing in portraying Oakland. It was utterly lovely and I couldn’t help enjoy it. The brilliant takes on race, gentrifications, police brutality, and identity. Overall, Blindspotting was an interesting and surprising entry to 2018; it’s simplistic yet so relevant and important.
