Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★

Housing, justice, peace. Life, liberty, happiness. I mean, its all right there in the Declaration of Independence. But when poor people demand it, it's a contradiction. It's not democracy, it's socialism, dig?

First off, everyone in this gave such amazing performances, especially Daniel Kaluuya, giving one of the best performances of recent years by a "supporting" actor. The way he isn't considered the lead actor in this is wild to me.

My main problem with this film is it felt SO Hollywoodized. There were bits of documentary-style scenes within the beginning and the end, but I think more scenes could have really helped elevate the film. Maybe some more creative cinematography and film editing, as well.

And it went from being so Hollywoodized to being one of the most graphic and brutal murder scenes I've ever seen in a film. So, I'm now super traumatized after watching this film.
