Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

sundance 2021: film #9

"you can murder a revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution"

buying a ticket one hour before the premiere was one of the best decisions i've made all year. a beautifully shot and important film. daniel kaluuya and lakeith stanfield are truly phenomenal. the ending devastated me. fred hampton was only 21 years old when he was assassinated.
