More Movies Please!


Mar 9, 2020

This week we dive headlong into the incredible Spike Lee film, BlacKkKlansman. Cue the “Spoiler Wilhelm Scream.” We talk about our expectations about the film before actually having seen it and being pleasantly surprised when we actually do watch it. Pleasantly surprised and deeply troubled. This is a movie that forces you to consider some truly terrible moments in the history of the U.S. It being a Spike Lee film, that’s done in a fascinating, unflinching, and stylish way. Also, Ron Stallworth (and the team of people he worked with) is a real badass and you should read about him.
