BlackkKlansman podcast review

Let’s Take Five covers their most recent film yet on the podcast. BlackkKlansman is the new Spike Lee film that was a big hit in this year’s Cannes film festival. They are joined by Chicago playwright David Guiden to discuss this political thriller where the first black police officer of a Colorado station goes undercover in the KKK. They discuss how the film depicts the police department and what the film says about the staying racism in today’s government.

 

Two notes: 1) As always, each episode looks at the film as a whole so there are spoilers about the end of the movie. And B) the episode has a slight digital corruption in the background of the episode that hopefully isn’t too distracting. It is not up to our usual standards, but we did not want to lose this episode with David.
