A police officer in Colorado Springs, CO, uses his "white" voice to join the KKK which allows him to stop attacks on the city. (Based on a true story)
I honestly never thought about watching this movie. I knew it came out. I knew it was supposedly good. I knew it was political which is probably why I never watched it. Overly political movies are not really my thing. However, I watched it tonight and I was wrong. It was so good.
John David Washington is fantastic and his performance here puts Tenet to shame. I remember him being good, but not this good. Adam Driver, who has a very special place in my heart, is outstanding. They really bring life to these characters that had to mount this crazy operation.
Must see. It was an Oscar winner for a reason, brings real life to the same arguments that we have been having for 200+ years. Especially with everything that has happened in the last 5 years.
It is a Spike Lee film, so dear lord is there is a lot of language, plus the subject matter means that there is going to be a lot of racist vernacular in there. My dad is 100% out. My mom might watch it as there is a good story, but the language might be a bit much for her. No sex, violence is minimum, but the language is a lot.
