Two friends are made aware of racial differences against the colorful backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Oakland.
Loved it! I laughed, I cried, I got angry; all emotions were pushed! Outstanding ..
Easily the best film of the year, distillation of human relationships and what it means to feel an outsider in your own circumstance. Beautiful stuff artistically and passionately rendered.
This movie does a great job showing the racial tension in Oakland. It tells a very interesting story. Definitely recommend.
dont shoot resolute
guy yelling dont shoot belongs in a movie since it didnt happen in the real world
It’s unfair to call this movie this generations Friday. But it definitely is it’s own staple in this generations issues of race, wealth, and the difference between a man and a tough guy .
Great film. Very well written and good acting too. Recommended.
Brilliant and must see!

It’ll open your eyes- a must see. Thank you Rafa and Daveed
I expected a great movie with Daveed Diggs, I did not expect the impact this movie had on me. This movie far surpassed any expectations I could have had.
This is a movie about experiences that so many of us are fortunate to never have to witness. It’s one that provides a three-day glimpse into someone’s mind and its intensity cannot be understated.
This is required watching and reminds me of why we read fiction; to gain a perspective different than our own.
I saw this in the movie theater and really enjoyed it. It was intense, funny and thought provoking. I wanted to see it again with friends, but it left the theaters quickly. I’m so glad it’s available for purchase and rental. I would highly recommend.
Landmark film for the generations.

Blindspotting is a hidden treasure in the truest sense. It’s an indie film whose first appearance was only evident by those seeking something beyond a simple, socially conscious comedy.
It is the rare comedy-drama that manages a perfect balance between hilarity, and absolute heartbreak.
It is a story about the grittiness and unpleasantries of what is expected to be the masculine ideal. What it means to belong, and how that sense of cultural identity can ultimately fail you.
Brilliantly, it is also a story about transcendence. Embracing change. Understanding the veil put on you by others—and moving past them. It is a story about the complications of true friendship. True relationships. There are no perfect people in this movie; only beautiful ones.
Lol. Seriously though, this is landmark film depicting the effects of new-and-old social-politics. It is not in-your-face, but it does not hold your hands. These characters exist. And this is their reality.
