Shatteringly powerful film-making by Spike Lee. Stars Denzel Washington’s son and that Kylo Ren bloke, Funny and terrifying and sad. Hard to put into words.

It’s considered a return to form for him. As always, he offers no easy solutions - just holds a mirror up to American society.

The wife of one of the Klansmen is a touching character. She gave a brilliant performance as a naive and helpful lady, someone who really wanted to contribute, even though the cause was purest evil.

I've always had issue with his style, not the story nor performances.  It's just too much NYU film school to me.
