I've long had mixed feeling about Spike Lee as a director. However, I thought his last film, BlacKkKlansman, was one of the best films of its year and vastly superior to the antiquated and phony Green Book which somehow won an Oscar for best picture. I was anxious to see this. The pluses: Chadwick Boseman's all too brief performance, who is fine, but its primary interest was due to his role being about death in some fashion or another and how brave he was for taking on this small role knowing what we now know. Some of the cinematography was good. It makes fun of Trump. And finally, it ends, though it takes a very long time for that to occur. This movie is pretty much awful. The direction is a mess. The performances by the four principles are either overacted or cartoonish. The plot is a little far fetched, but could have held some interest if it were done with some believability and didn't get worse as it went along and it has some gruesome scenes. It has a very strong and major reality issue involving those same four principles who we see over a 50 year or more period of time and apparently we are not supposed to notice the lack of age difference, though sometimes they do keep their faces hidden as much as they can. I could go on and on about the things that are wrong about it such as the cornball ending, but I shall digress after I add I am clueless as to the acclaim and the awards it has won and those that it is up for. It was so annoying.
