Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★½

Incendiary when it needs to be and the cast is spot on.

Just not as powerful as it hopes to because there are too many scenes of speechifying.

Everyone not playing a Black Panther is a cartoon villain, with Jesse Plemons taking smarm to the nth.

Finally saw all the Oscar nominees after finishing this. Probably lands in the top half of the nominees but has no chance of winning.

Now I just want to see Get Out again since three of its cast members are in it.

Thank goodness nothing bad happened to black people at the hands of racist white people ever again...
