Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★½

dominique fishback's performance in SHOW ME A HERO has stuck with me since i watched it and she's even better here, she deserves all the awards (as do daniel kaluuya—our most versatile working actor i think—and lakeith stanfield—whose performance as this clearly lost man who lacks any personal conviction or identity is just so fucking sad). a real masterclass in acting all around and the score by craig harris and mark isham is cacophonous and grating—i loved it so much.
