Lee is releasing his latest film, "BlacKkKlansman", this weekend, a year after the violent clashes in Charlottesville in which anti-racism activist Heather Heyer was run over and killed.

After Charlottesville, Lee chose to end his movie with documentary footage from the protests, including the vehicle that rammed into Heyer and Trump's response blaming "both sides" for the violence.

"We have a man in the White House who sums that all up".

"I saw this horrific act of homegrown, red, white and blue, cherry-pie terrorism", Lee said in regards to the violence that took place at Charlottesville, which is why he ended up including it in the movie.

"No. Might be Putin", Lee said.

Topher Grace, who plays 1970s Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, said the cast and crew were struck by the movie's contemporary relevance while filming.

"It gets more and more timely with every second that passes, sadly".

"BlacKkKlansman", also starring Adam Driver and John David Washington, has won warm reviews, scoring a rare 100 percent approval from top critics on aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes.

The New York Times called it "a furious, funny, blunt and brilliant confrontation with the truth".
