BlacKkKlansman

Where to begin?

I went to see this movie yesterday with my son, not quite knowing what to expect other than it had scored 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.

I won’t mention the shenanigans at the front desk;

It blew me away.

Afterwards, my son told me that I say that about every film I watch at the Curzon.

I say, no, no. This was special.

It was beautiful. Frightening, painful, articulate.

It seemed to coincide with my recent concerns about left and right, the collapse into inanity that is sweeping over America and Britain, the love affair with extremism, Right-wing chaos; it is a blur.

What can I say?

The music, transportation back to the 70’s, humour, sadness, tension and shock. It make me feel small, safe and terrified.

I don’t really want to say more as I am sure it will sound like schlock.

Go see it.

If you don’t like, I don’t mind, for you will have seen it!

  1. Very interesting podcast. After the native American expressed so much respect, the non-existent so-called educators’ failure leads to such furore and an ironic uproar ( if you can have such a thing) to be the victim, and here we seem to be heading that way again. Listening to the other point of view a lost art?

  2. At last have acquired DVD ( sorry not the cinema experience) , learnt ( stumbled upon) how to load ,and watched Black Klansmann! You are right , really bri!!isn’t film, actors, theme and soundtrack — – and an education . You know a little but this expands with humour and even with horror eventually, the knowledge. So good and so important.
    ( I just have to find a way to retrieve the disc now from the innards of the pc…………..).
