I was really impressed by this movie!

I didn’t get a chance to see fit before the Oscars, but I put it on my Netflix queue as soon as as the disc was available. Can definitely see why it was in the running for Best Picture. Comparing it directly to the Best Picture winner (Green Book), I actually think this might have had a slightly better storyline from beginning to end, but Green Book definitely had better performances. My guess is that the two were probably very close in the voting.

The vibe of the movie was very good, and the use of music was spot on. The scene in the club after the rally used the Atmos speakers to good effect, and the music was often present all around from what I recall. Usually, the height speakers are used for individual sound effects of some kind, but the music mix seemed appropriate.

The movie purports itself to be based on the true story of a black police officer in Colorado Springs that manages to infiltrate the local chapter of the KKK, even to the point of getting the national leader to fast-track his membership card.

Many of the things that happen would never be possible in this age of information everywhere but the movie does a very good job of immersing you in that time period so you don’t really even think twice about what couldn’t be done in today’s time.

There is quite a bit of language, so if you aren’t up for that, move on. However, if you are interested in sitting down for an enjoyable 2+ hours, this is the movie for you.

The ending ties the historical events of racial bias and violence to those of current times (the demonstration and violence in Charlottesville in 2017), as if to illustrate just how far some in this country have yet to come. Even the movie plays largely as a comedy, this adds a little poignancy to it all.
