Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

Dominique Fishback is killing it! So excited for her to get more recognition for her talent.

Here are two reviews from Black writers that I thought explored the complexities of a film like this: Angelica Jade Bastién's review for Vulture, and Matthew A. Cherry's essay for Variety.

I think it's extremely difficult for a movie produced by a Hollywood studio to express revolutionary politics, but this film captures some of what made Fred Hampton a powerful leader.
