Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
BlacKkKlansman tells a fascinating story in a very uneven way. The issue here is that Spike Lee can’t decide if the film is a arthouse movie, a comedy or a serious historical document and the end result is that tonally the film is a bit of a mess which ultimately robs it of its power. The performances are great (this said Adam Driver still seems to play every character the same) and Lee’s direction is polished but I honestly think there’s a better film to be made here.
