This was not a good movie...


I'm sympathetic to the themes involved, but it has HEAVYHANDED. DRAMATIC IRONY!!!!!!!!!!! METAPHOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RELEVANCE TO CURRENT EVENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY 101!!!!!!!!!!!! Spike Lee has never been the subtlest of filmmakers but this was just too much.

It was a great film. The screenplay was excellent and the performances were fantastic. One of the best films of 2018.

How dare you criticize a movie directed and written by a black man. RACIST!

Yeah, that ain't right!

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.
