Amy and Harry from Mum and Mummer Podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Amy’s choice Blindspotting.

Blindspotting is a 2018 comedy-drama starring Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal as childhood best friends Colin and Miles. Colin is on the last three days of his probation, trying to stay on the straight and narrow.

After hanging out with his pal Miles he witnesses a police shooting of a black civilian and doesn’t report it, he starts to experience hallucinations and nightmares as a result of his guilt. Miles, short-tempered and loud is growing increasingly frustrated by the gentrification of Oakland and starts using violence to express his anger.

Blindspotting gives breath and depth to the odd couple/buddy film by exploring racial bias and social inequality. The performances are outstanding, Diggs’ Colin is both the everyman trying to get by and political poetry powerful. While Casal brings a vulnerability to the brash and privileged Miles. Blindspotting manages to be both uncomfortable and familiar – moving between bromance bants and social commentary.




Blindspotting scores highly on recommendability and with a run time of 95 it also scores highly on engagement – definitely worth a watch – 4.04 overall score.
