Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

This stylish, outrageous, and incredible true story comes to the big screen, courtesy of director Spike Lee. Picture a time of social upheaval, when the struggle for civil rights and social equality is alive and well. No, not now – the 1970s! When rookie Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) joins the Colorado Springs police department, he’s the first African-American detective on their force – and he’s got big plans. Namely, he’s going to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan by posing as a white supremacist himself. Which is fine when he’s just on the phone, but he recruits a more seasoned, and whiter, colleague by the name of Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to be the face of his undercover operation and gain in-person insight into the group’s plans. Stallworth’s crusade may be just another day on the job to Zimmerman, but together they work to expose the hate group as it’s trying to go mainstream. Oh, and did we mention Topher Grace plays Grand Wizard David Duke?

1 or Spike’s absolute best! The parallels to today are amazingly scary. A true wake up call for those blindly falling Trump & some great backstory on Trump’s boy David Duke. Wake up white america!

BlacKkKlansman may well be the first film to frame the Trump era as one of regression in response to the progress of the Obama years.

It’s no surprise that director Spike Lee prefers a hammer to a scalpel for this real-life drama, but his righteous fury is supplemented with a mature thoughtfulness that gives the proceedings the grim weight of history.

Lee and his writers have thrown as many logs on the fire as they’ve been able to find to signal the persistence of racial injustice; they have also endeavored, and mostly succeeded, to entertain.
