Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

this is possibly my favourite era of history, not just because of the innovation in music and cinema but also how it brought an opportunity for leftists such as myself to respond to injustice and violent hatred with revolution. it feels so good to finally see this period and revolutionaries like fred hampton and bobby seale shown in film because of how strongly it reflects modern events and how we got to where we are now. i'm rooting super hard for daniel kaluuya to take the oscar for best supporting actor (odd considering how he's a protagonist??) bc of the way he puts everything into the characters he portrays, especially since this character in particular is both a real person and has so many strong traits and motivations to convey.
