BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman

Clashing tones, especially when you see the real, recent footage at the end after a movie that has a surprising amount of levity. As if Spike Lee's admitting that movies need to be entertainment in the first place, but that doesn't exclude them from being about real things. As usual with these undercover police stories I'm more into the minutiae that comprise the start of an investigation, than I am once the scale starts moving away towards the bigger picture, but Lee keeps things personal enough, and despite a 2 hour+ runtime it kept me invested all the way through.
