I went to see BlacKkKlansman in the cinema yesterday and really enjoyed it, whilst also being very uncomfortable. It was equal parts hilarious and horrifying, which I think was the intention - and it did both extremely well. I know there's been a lot of discussion of the portrayal of the different types of people in the film, and whether or not they should have been presented as heroes or otherwise. In my view, I thought one of the best aspects of the film was that the people in it were shown to be very much people, and not faceless representatives of one particular group or another. Not all of the black characters were idolised, and not all of the white characters were vilified, and the film did a great job of demonstrating the complexities within the fight against racism. I would highly recommend going to see it on all levels.
