“Blindspotting” has 20/20 Vision

Blindspotting was one of the talked about films to bow at this year’s Sundance – and it’s being talked about even more now that it’s opened wide. Directed by Carlos López Estrada and produced, written and played by Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) and Rafael Casal, the film is part of the growing “Oakland New Wave” which includes, just this year, Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You (another Sundance sensation) and a little movie called Black Panther, via East Bay favorite son Ryan Coogler (who not surprisingly worked his hometown into the plot).
