Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
30 years ago, Spike Lee‘s Do the Right Thing was overlooked at the Oscars. Now, his film BlacKkKlansman has given Spike his ticket to the Oscars. The film follows a black Colorado cop in the 1970s who infiltrates the KKK.
The film is an impressive effort that feels sadly relevant today. It’s a fun movie that’s overtly political. That’s been Spike Lee’s specialty for his entire career. Now, it seems like the Academy has finally caught up with him. He may not win any awards this year, but at least they finally seem to know he’s great. It took them long enough.
