This was not a good movie. Yes it was way heavy handed and clumsy. Now, I enjoy most of the films made by Mr. S. Lee. But, this was rubbish. The story was incredible based on some true events. But the film itself was amateurish and odd. Especially coming from a filmmaker who has made, "Mo Better Blues," "Clockers," "25th Hour" and others. For a while I thought he was doing some kind of homage to the Blaxploitation of the early 70's. But those films were more of a higher quality than "BlacKkKlansman." And, they were fun. This is a bad film with assimilates stretched to make some points about today's situations. A great film maker way off course.
