This latest Spike Lee ‘joint’ is certainly the best he has delivered for some time, telling the remarkable true story of Ron Stallworth. Played to perfection by John David Washington (who incidentally is Denzel’s son), Ron is a Black police officer in Colorado in 1979 who manages to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan thanks to a duality-deception sting operation with fellow officer Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver). Ron is the voice and Flip is the face of this undercover unit as they bring down the heinous local Klan terrorists, fronted by David Duke (a scene-stealing Topher Grace). It’s such an unbelievable story, proving that fact is far more disturbing than fiction. With a streak of dark comedy and a fantastic ensemble, this is a timely and grave reminder of where we are as a society today.
