BlacKkKlansman (2018)

dir. Spike Lee. Epic filmmaking. The story of undercover cops working together to infiltrate the KKK, the white cop in person, and the black cop on the phone would be unbelievable, if it wasn’t true. Like so much of Spike Lee’s movies, he somehow manages to craft moments of laugh out loud humor, from the most heartbreaking settings. A real ensemble cast performance. Very cool to see Isiah Whitlock Jr. channeling his earlier role in ‘The Wire’. Reminds me to rewatch Spike Lee’s MALCOLM X (1992). The ending is breathtaking.
