“If The Birth of A Nation was history written with lighting, BlacKkKlansman is a deafening roll of the thunder we’ve been waiting for ever since.” —David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“BlacKkKlansman is based on the true story of Ron Stallworth, a black Colorado Springs police officer who went undercover in the late 1970s to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Spike Lee recognizes the nutso potential of that premise and runs with it: Stallworth’s story is so wild you can barely believe it—but certainly not wilder than the virulent resurgence of white supremacy in this country, so extreme it goes beyond the reach of satire. BlacKkKlansman is both hilarious and exquisitely direct, and had it been made before November 2016, you might call Lee’s approach a little alarmist. But if anything, he’s restrained. This is an angry film as well as a hugely entertaining one, and Lee has complete control over its shifting tone, minute by minute”—Stephanie Zacharek, Time. Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace and Harry Belafonte, Black KkKlansman is “riotous fun one minute, savagely biting the next.” —Time Out. R. 135 Min.
