BlacKkKlansman ★★★★★

Exceptional satire that empathically, powerfully articulates a historical story of identity and racism which reverberates as much today. Though not always subtly, Spike Lee conveys themes with the disarming force of a gut punch. That BlacKkKlansman is in awards conversation alongside Green Book is a great irony and the synchronicity between Driving Miss Daisy/Do the Right Thing's similar trajectory should not be lost on anyone. This movie right here is the salve, so guess which one is the affliction.
