Indie Focus: New perspectives in 'BlacKkKlansman,' 'Crazy Rich … – Los Angeles Times

At Film Comment, Teo Bugbee explored the meaning of Lee’s decision to conclude the film with images of the hateful violence from one year ago in Charlottesville, Va., by saying, “Were ‘BlacKkKlansman’ only to include the 1979 story, it would still be a major achievement for Lee. But in the film’s coda, the director adds a grace note that reframes everything that came before it, giving one last insight into why it matters that this story about the Klan, the police, and racism in America should be told through a contemporary lens.”
