Blindspotting

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Convicted felon Collin Hoskins (Daveed Diggs) has three days left of his probationā€¦ which is when his best friend (Rafael Casal) decides to buy a gun. Much like another film about race set in Oakland, California, this one also received praise at the Sundance festival. Not as impressive as Ryan Cooglerā€™s Fruitvale Station (2013), Blindspotting is uneven and a little too melodramatic at times but still offers a fresh, unpolished perspective from the two leads who are childhood friends also in real life. Racial tension is a constant theme; gentrification of Oakland communities is another source of tension.

2018-U.S. 95 min. Color. Directed byĀ Carlos LĆ³pez Estrada. Screenplay: Rafael Casal, Daveed Diggs. Cast: Daveed Diggs (Collin Hoskins), Rafael Casal (Miles), Janina Gavankar (Val), Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martinā€¦ Wayne Knight.

Trivia: Co-produced by Diggs and Casal.Ā Followed by a TV series, Blindspotting (2021- ).
