Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

“America’s on fire right now and until the fire is extinguished don’t nothin’ else mean a goddamn thing.”
- Fred Hampton

Kaluuya and Stanfield are at the top of their acting game with every new performance, and boy is it a sight to see. Such a captivating story through and through, but I gotta highlight one of my absolute favorite cinematographers in the business’ work on this film. 

Sean Bobbitt has an extraordinary perspective of the human face, and can encapsulate anything’s beauty in a single provocative shot. Some of the most innovative camerawork comes from Bobbitt’s lens, and it’s a travesty he’s yet to receive a single Oscar nomination.
