In Spike Lee's latest movie, which is loosely based upon how real-life Colorado detective Ron Wallworth infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan back in the 1970s, almost every character is racist in some way or other. This is thematically dense and overwhelming stuff with so much attitude and antagonism that it can almost make you lose faith in humanity. Luckily, our protagonist himself, played with stoic confidence by John David Washington, does not belong to the above category. Along with his inner circle of colleagues, he is the voice of reason who rises above all the historical baggage the film fiddles with and leads the battle. Lee structures his film as a tour de force of good vs. evil, enlightened vs. ignorant. Whether or not the dab at the current state of affairs is relevant, I'll leave up to the individual viewer.
