Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

1960’s black struggle has rarely looked as powerful and poignant in film before Shaka King’s mastery of filmmaking here. The devastating and emotionally draining experience is absolutely the way to portray the Black Panther’s charged relevance in the conflict still carrying on today. Kaluuya and Stanfield’s excellent performances add to King’s unique eye towards invoking the passion of black voices and police fear that we frankly need right now. Highly important while entertaining to boot.
