Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★½

With any luck this will serve as a corrective to White America's endemic misconceptions about the Panthers and get more people to realize that socialism is hardly some terrible monstrosity to be afraid of. Regarding Hampton, the film talks the talk but only scratches the surface of the revolutionary tenets he was dauntlessly putting into motion before being assassinated, which is a bummer but shouldn't come as a shock. At the end of the day it is your father's Hollywood authorized Fred Hampton biopic.
