Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

Man, what a movie. 

LaKeith Stanfield continues his meteoric rise on his way to becoming a household name as he portrays the conflicted FBI rat who grows close to Fred Hampton and climbs the ranks of the Black Panther party. He is especially phenomenal in the final act where he truly is torn. 

Daniel Kaluuya is magical as the famed Fred Hampton. In his best performance yet, he is shown delivering awe-inspiring speeches and holding the attention of huge crowds. His accent is great too.
