SPIKE LEE BRINGS HUMOUR AND A HARD-HITTING MESSAGE TO BIZARRE TRUE STORY ABOUT THE KKK
While Denzel Washington stars in the anti-hero vigilante flick The Equalizer 2 this month, it's his son, John David Washington, who stars in this year's most important film about trying to seek justice against truly evil people.
Washington plays Ron Stallworth, a rookie cop granted a provisional position on the Colorado police force after a hideously patronising interview, which shows not all of the racism Stallworth will face will come from the KKK. Ambitious and inspired by the Black Panthers' revolutionary call to arms, Stallworth impulsively answers a recruitment ad for the KKK to eek out information.
