Review: One more light shaded on one of America's biggest problems, but this time it's worth watching if you're not an American and the universe doesn't revolve around you. The movie shows how America takes care of her problems, at the same time from a global scope you see America wanna take care of everybody's problems, in which lies the irony and the comedic aspect of this piece. I didn't approach this movie with high hopes, but gladly I was surprised. The actual film itself is very watchable and enjoyable. The acting is excellent, the story line clever and original. Its also deeply sad and at times, extremely funny, in equal measure. Its nice to see people deriving a kind of wry humor from what is a legacy of, at times, downright nasty, discrimination. All the actors are great. John David Washington excels in his first major leading role. Adam Driver signs what is arguably his best role to date. Ryan Eggold is terrific as the local boss of the KKK, and the Finnish Jasper Pääkkönen impresses as his right hand man. The biggest surprise of all is Topher Grace, who is near-ingenious as David Duke, a well-mannered bag of sleaze in a three-piece. Spike Lee reminds you once again why he teaches on the subject of film. He constructs a damn fine one.
