  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …director Spike Lee has taken Stallworth’s true 1970’s tale and made it into a buddy cop comedy targeting Donald Trump.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The film is some of the most refined and sharpest filmmaking in Spike Lee’s filmography. It’s hilarious, haunting, exhilarating, and exactly the kind of cinematic slap-in-the-face we need right now
  • [New] | Candice Frederick @ Slash Film
  • [New] | Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: I’ll be surprised if I see a better film this year.
  • [New] | Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: Spike Lee sets fire to the KKK (and Donald Trump’s legacy) with the powerful yet cheeky crowd-pleaser BlacKkKlansman.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: So no matter how effective the suspense of this dangerous mission—and it’s taut from start to finish despite the excellent humor to prove Lee’s most accessibly entertaining work since Inside Man—it all pales in comparison to [its] display of empathy.
  • [New] | Ruben Peralta Rigaud @ Cocalecas.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: BlacKKlansman funciona en el sentido de su propio análisis político como un entretenimiento que invita a la reflexión del mundo y sus ideales.
