Spike Lee's latest flick Blackkklansman has arrived as has sci-fi thriller The Meg and rom-com Crazy Rich Asians

Blackkklansman

UAE films - Blackkklansman

Based on the very real story of Ron Stallworth, a black police officer  who infiltrated the racists of the Ku Klux Klan, comes this dramedy retelling of the whole somewhat unbelievable events. It marks the big screen return of Spike Lee (Do The Right Thing, Malcolm X) who’s joined by Get Out producer, Jordan Peele to deliver this film adaptation of Stallworth’s extraordinary autobiography of the same name. John David Washington (Denzel’s son) takes the lead role as Ron alongside his partner Detective Flip Zippermann played by Adam Driver, (Girls, Star Wars). Stallworth sees an ad in the local paper requesting new members to a Colorado Springs faction of the Ku Klux Klan. Cue an almost unbelievable stroke of luck, which not only wins over the  white supremacist on the other end of the phone, but leads to a case that implicates serving members of the US military who are planning an attack. As a Spike Lee joint usually plays out, there are layers of dark humour that come with this serious subject, but there’s a terrifying depth that will have you grimacing in disgust.
