This last weekend I went to go see Spike Lee's new film, Blackkklansman. It's based on a true story of a Colorado Springs KKK chapter in the 1970's and how the first black police officer infiltrated the group. The film is VERY well done. It's entertaining. It's got everything you want from a film - good actors/acting, comedy, evocation of emotion, and relatable to current events (and, as a bonus, based on a true story). I mean, it won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival already - you really should watch it.
First, has anyone else seen it? Can we talk about your reaction? I don't want to give away any spoilers, but woof, it was heavy.
My question is, these films come to pop culture with a big statement, but what does the statement do? I know it's supposed to create a discussion, but what do we do with that discussion? Does this help a cause or just hurt it by perpetuating conversation with like-minded individuals and no action?
