Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★½

Very well made, it wouldn't be much of a surprise if Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield and Jesse Plemons walk away with acting Oscars over their careers. Kaluuya is a pretty impressive actor for having a pretty thick accent in real life and showing no signs of it in any movie, especially while acting his ass off. This, BlacKkKlansman and The Trial of the Chicago 7 all kind of tell a patchwork history of the Black Panthers, it's interesting that they have all come out in the last couple of years. Judas might be the weakest of the three, yet is still quite riveting. The biggest shock was learning how young Fred Hampton was when he was killed for how bold of a leader he was.
