Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

Blown away by the masterful performances of Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield. Daniel Kaluuya's acting in this film even supersedes that of his role in Get Out. It's also terrific the manner in which LaKeith Stanfield (Bill O'Neal) swings from confidence to fear in just a couple of minutes. The rest of the actors do great in their roles as well. The cinematography is wonderful. The songs featured in the film are from the sixties time period, bearing a potent combination of orchestral jazz and melancholy strings. There is not a dull moment in this film. The year is still fresh for film, but I don't see many films to be released this year beating this one.
