Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah

What is wrong with the United States? I found myself asking this throughout the movie as there are still horrible injustices to this day. Will this country ever learn? Racism is such an idiot ideology that it’s just laughable to think about how it has any place in society. It may seem hopeless given history repeating itself, but it’s films like Judas and the Black Messiah that helps educate which leads to more involved individuals. I hate using terms like “powerhouse performances”, but that’s exactly what every actor brings to the table. Raw energy that grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go. Of the great films tackling this subject matter in the last few years, this film stands on top of all of them. Engaging, thoughtful and powerful. Shaka King has a strong voice. I look forward to what he comes out with next.
