Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

I was tempted to simply copy and paste my review for Queen & Slim, because a) it is still true and b) I wrote it two weeks after joining Letterboxd, so it is sitting at a single like and not many of my mutuals would have noticed if I had. Also: It is still true. Every single word of it.

I officially announced that Daniel Kaluuya is my favorite actor currently working in January last year, and he makes it so easy for me to stick to this commitment: His talent, his charisma, his versatility, his eyes (oh, his eyes!) - he is everything I look for in an actor. And he keeps choosing interesting projects like this one.

Oh, and Lakeith Stanfield is just as terrific here.
