Good episode? Give it some love!
Esther Lisk-Carew and Jass Thethi from Well Spoken Tokens join Flixwatcher remotely to review Jass’s choice BlacKkKlansman.

BlacKkKlansman is a 2018 Oscar-Winning (Best Adapted Screenplay) Spike Lee joint starring John David Washington and Adam Driver.

BlacKkKlansman is based on the 2014 memoir by Ron Stallworth. Set in 1970s Colorado Springs it tells the story of the first African-American detective in the police department who manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan chapter with the help of Flip (Driver) Zimmerman.
Even though BlacKkKlansman is set in the 1970s a lot of the themes running through it are still very prevalent in today’s America. Lee using artistic license adds dry humour and moments of light relief whilst tackling the unpleasant and disturbing KKK.

Up there with Do The Right Thing, BlacKkKlansman is contemporary and Lee at his best. Unsurprisingly BlacKkKlansman scores very highly across all the categories - particularly in the recommendability category to score a very respectable 4.58 overall.
