Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

An unbelievable story. Even if this wasn’t based on real events, it would be a riveting film. It’s heartbreaking, thrilling, and full of amazing performances.

Lakeith Stanfield is so great in everything he’s in but what’s even more impressive is how fantastic the films/shows are that he acts in (Atlanta, Uncut Gems, Knives Out, Get Out, THIS). The balance between him and Daniel Kaluuya is one of the best acting tandems I’ve seen in a while. 

It’s not only a fascinating 2 hours, it’s very timely as well of course. I hope this gets some love at the Oscars.
