Powerful
21 July 2018 | by usernamenowSee all my reviews

Blindspotting is a film about Collin (Daveed Diggs) as he spends his last 3 days of probation trying to stay out of trouble. Once completed, he can move out of the halfway house he's living in and move on with his life. He works at a moving company with his best friend Miles (Rafael Casal).

The film is fantastic. The direction, writing (written by both Diggs and Casal), and acting are all incredible. Themes of loyalty, race, class, perception, gentrification, and violence are all intertwined without feeling forced, and there's amazing beauty to it all. At times its funny, at times its hard to watch, but its always gripping.

Just as real world issues have always inspired art, this film is very topical. Many of the current issues America is facing are addressed, and its powerful.

Keep an eye on Diggs and Casal. I wouldn't be surprised if they get an Oscar nod for Best Original Screenplay. And even if not, they did an absolutely brilliant job writing this film, and I hope for more from them like this.

Go watch this film. You won't regret it.
