Seeing and Believing 166: Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians
As summer draws to a close, Seeing & Believing offers a little something for everyone. For the auteurist, we’ve got a review of the latest Spike Lee joint, BlacKkKlansman, which tells the true story of the first black detective in Colorado Springs and the 1979 sting operation he led against the Ku Klux Klan. If frothy escapism is more your thing, we take a look at the much-buzzed-about romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians, based on Kevin Kwan’s novel about an American economics professor who discovers her boyfriend is both the scion of a fabulously rich Singapore family and the most eligible bachelor in the country.
