Favorite film of 2018
1 December 2018 | by killertapehead-581-96203See all my reviews

There are a lot of films that attempt different social issues but most seem forced and preaching. Blindspotting is organic and has such a real texture.

I've read some of the other reviews and none of them understand the characters in the film are very real. If you have ever lived in the bay, you know these people are real. Everything in the film comes from natural situations that happen without forcing it down your throat and show how one thing can lead to another. I've watched it multiple times and shown countless people and not a single person walked away from the film not blown away
