I rated BlackkKlansman 10/10 on IMDB

www.imdb.com/title/tt7349662

one of the best new films I have seen in recent times.

It’s played with humour and passion. It has a serious message and serious content. It has polemic and argument. It is outrageously entertaining.

An ambitious guy becomes the Colorado springs police force’s first black police officer. And then becomes their first detective. When he responds to the KKK’s newspaper ad with a phone call he’s in. Working with his white Jewish partner they infiltrate the local chapter of ‘the organisation’ and uncover domestic terror plans. The KKK members are played brilliantly and portrayed, accurately, as racist hapless idiots with bad intent.

With its serious undertow and political messages this could have been disturbing and dull. Instead it is a consciousness-raising entertainment movie that deserves viewing.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
