Blindspotting

Blindspotting ★★★★

A ferocious and completely magnetic look at race, community, and eking out an existence, "Blindspotting" blends satire, style, and the real currents of life for something honest and impactful. Directed by Carlos López Estrada and starring a dynamic and charismatic Daveed Diggs, the drama finds Diggs' parolee returning to his Oakland, California roots and holding it together while he navigates probation. With flair and rhythm, pathos and life, the film reveals the fears and truths of its characters and holds them up as mirrors to the bigger societal ideas at work in both the film and world. Mixing its heavy and lightness with skill, the film stands up and stands out.
