BLINDSPOTTING (2018) is the best new movie I’ve seen all year. It’s a funny coincidence that Spike Lee has a new movie out around the same time; much like one of his best, “Do the Right Thing,” this is a movie that will be discussed and revisited for decades to come. “Blindspotting” is not only a gripping reflection of modern anxieties around race, gentrification and the police, but it’s also hilariously funny ... when it chooses to be. Even on my second viewing, knowing what would happen, I still laughed at the funny parts and tensed up when — well, at a lot of scenes, which I won’t give away here in keeping with my no-spoilers rule. Seriously, just go see this movie if it’s in theaters near you while you can. You’ll be glad you did.
