Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★

Kaluuya and Stanfield give two of the best performances of last year. Great soundtrack, impactful filmmaking. It did feel like it lost it’s way a little in the second act, and I think the script could have definitely been improved, but still a really solid film overall. I understand the criticisms of the actors being too old and the film not delving enough into Hampton’s actual politics (of which admittedly I know nearly nothing about), but I think the message the film promotes is positive and will lead many to research him and his cause, so I don’t feel that they’re that relevant.
