Director Spike Lee's drama was produced by the team behind Get Out and offers another provocative exploration of American race relations. In the midst of the 1970s civil rights movement, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department. He sets out to prove his worth by infiltrating the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and convinces his Jewish colleague (Adam Driver) to go undercover as a white supremacist.

This movie was suppose to take place in 1971-72. Throughout some of the bar scenes and home scenes, the patrons and klan members were drinking bottles of Schlitz beer that had bar codes on the back of the labels. Bar codes were not introduced until 1974. See more »
I just left the theater and feel obligated to write my first IMDB review. This film is very well balanced, it easily switches between serious and funny moments. The plot, dialog and acting all come together to make a cohesive movie. I was very impressed with the main character's acting, at the time I did not know it was Denzel Washington's son. This film has substance yet was hilarious as well, it understands that a serious subject matter can also be entertaining at the same time.
