Movie Info

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men's friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in. Longtime friends and collaborators, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

All Critics (95) | Top Critics (34)

Racism, gentrification, police brutality, start-up culture, corporate branding, social media, the justice system ... Blindspotting is eager to take them all on with style and wit, and it succeeds more often than not.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Blindspotting" is directed with fervor by first-timer Carlos López Estrada, who brings its simmering tensions to a boil without letting the pot overflow.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

[Casal and Diggs'] talent and charisma are all but undeniable, and their ambition is impossible not to admire, but their execution is confused - fatally so, from a storytelling standpoint.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The film moves like a pendulum between the comforting tone of a buddy comedy and dark themes of systemic racism and police brutality.

July 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

See the movie, for its urgency, for its performances, and for the vibrant portrait of a community being erased in the names of progress and profit.
