I haven’t seen a ton of Spike Lee movies* but the ones I have seen drag a little, and this one was no exception. Aside from that, it was well worth watching and provided tense moments, moments of relief through humor, great acting** and really awesome costumes. And the ending was frigging amazing.
Where watched: McMenamins Baghdad Theater with Matt. It was the first showing and a nice August day, so the theater was mostly empty, which was the opposite of what I would have wanted for this particular film.
*Need to rectify that
**John David Washington is very, very good.
Of note. I’ve found a good site for movies such as this: History vs Hollywood. It drills down to the details of “based on a true story.”
