Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

So pre-review, I looked into director Shaka King's filmography and I was pretty shook to find out that he has directed the most episodes of the Hulu show, "Shrill" with SNL's Aidy Bryant. "Shrill" is currently one of my favorite shows on TV right now, so this is also a lil shoutout to that show hehe.

ANYWAYS, powerful. This movie is motherfucking powerful. It feels like an action movie in so much of the situations and intensity. It moves, the pacing is fast and each scene hits harder than the last. Kaluuya is amazing as you've heard, Lakeith Stanfield is also phenomenal as well, and Jesse Plemmons is great as usual. This movie is searing.
