Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

wow. i have trouble putting my thoughts into words. i don’t think we ever learned about fred hampton and the black panther party in school so this was all quite new to me. a story with so much power, intensity, and admirable characters. both, daniel kaluuya and lakeith stanfield, give exceptional performances. i also loved the chemistry between kaluuya and dominique fishback. if there’s one thing i’d criticise, i’d wish that certain scenes would have been a bit longer. some aspects at the beginning seemed a bit rushed and not quite in depth enough. otherwise great film. definitely worth a rewatch at some stage.

just saw daniel kaluuya won a golden globe for his performance. so deserved!
