Spike Lee won the coveted Grand Prix from Cannes for BlacKkKlansman, which tells the astonishing true story of one of the riskiest undercover investigations in American history. It’s an improbable early ‘70s case in which African-American police detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) applied for and was ultimately granted membership to the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist extremist over the telephone, Stallworth infiltrates the KKK’s inner circle, but has his colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), pretend to be him for face-to-face meetings. Whilst remaining an unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America that still feels bracingly relevant. BlacKkKlansman is also gripping entertaining and funny.

“A blistering return to form for Spike Lee.” The Guardian.
