When Jordan Peele's Get Out dropped into cinemas a year ago with the force of a racially charged nuclear bomb, it blew audiences' minds and announced Peele's arrival as one of the most electric young African American filmmakers out there who was not afraid to tackle sensitive social topics while still thrilling.

People moving out, people moving in, all because of the color of their skin, preachers are the only ones talking about love, nobody's interested in learning but the teachers, but with the right white man, Spike Lee can do anything. "We all live on this planet, and this guy in the White House has the nuclear code". "The United States of America was built on the genocide of native people and slavery", he said. He also noted that he'd received permission from Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, before inserting imagery of Fields "murderous act". To do so, though, the rookie needs help, and he finds it in his colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), who is Jewish.

He added, "This film, to me, is a wake-up call because...stuff is happening, and it's topsy-turvy and the fake has been trumpeted as the truth".

"I go to bed every night thinking about it", Lee said, looking genuinely anxious. "Please excuse me for some profane words but the s- that's going on, it makes you want to curse". That's not science fiction, that s-t is real, and this motherf--er (Trump) has the nuclear code ...

As is the case throughout the occupied West Bank, the expanding settlements are guarded by a constant Israeli military presence. For Israelis, Sunday is Jerusalem Day, an annual celebration of the "reunification" of the city following the 1967 Six-Day War.

"Lee's latest is as much a compelling black empowerment story as it is an electrifying commentary on the problems of African-American representation across more than a century of cinema", Variety said.

On August 10th, the newest film from director Spike Lee will be premiering in theaters.

Peter Howell is the Star's movie critic.

The provocative project is vying for the Cannes Film Festival's prestigious Palme d'Or prize, and is up against films such as Everybody Knows, which stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, David Robert Mitchell's Under the Silver Lake, as well as Jean-Luc Godard's The Image Book.
