Prepremiere: BlackKlansman

 

Cinecitta presents, Saturday 25th August, 8:45 pm, a prepremiere of BlackKklansman. This is Spike Lee’s newest film. Our sneakers have really enjoyed the film. They rated it with 4,5 stars.

Spike Lee is at the top of his game with this alternately searing and satirical condemnation of racism, all-American style. Based on a true story, the film features John David Washington as Ron Stallworth, a black Colorado Springs police officer who went undercover in the late 1970s to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Stallworth posed as a white racist over the telephone and managed to wheedle his way into the KKK’s local branch. Of course, being black, he couldn’t possibly attend meetings himself, so fellow officer Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) goes in his stead. From this outrageous premise, Lee weaves a shape-shifting tale that utilizes every possible form imaginable—from essay film to tragic drama to screwball comedy to vérité documentary—to fashion a film for our times and a movie that is impossible to forget.

‘This is an angry film as well as a hugely entertaining one, and Lee has complete control over its shifting tone, minute by minute…  Stallworth’s story is so wild you can barely believe it—but certainly not wilder than the virulent resurgence of white supremacy in this country, so extreme it goes beyond the reach of satire. BlacKkKlansman is both hilarious and exquisitely direct… [It’s] the movie we need right now…’—Stephanie Zacharek, Time
