Another fantastic Spike Lee joint by Peter Roberts

Oh my God, how good is this film, well it's great. Don't get me wrong the subject matter is tough and you do need a thick skin in places, however it is worth it.
The premise of a black undercover police man trying to infiltrate the KKK is brilliant. What is even more brilliant is that it is based on true events. The film does get a bit slow in moments but you need to go through this journey to appreciate the film in its entirety. When you do get to the climax and the ultimate point of the film you realise just how bad things are in the states and that nothing has changed, if anything it is worse because the racism now has a legitimate front.
This film also has input from Jordan Peele which adds to its greatness. Watch this film and it will go some way to improve your understanding of the current state of the world we live in, maybe then we can start to change it.

I love Spike Lee and this did not disappoint.
