Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★½

Quite simply, this is one of the most significant films of the entire year. It can take a while to get used to the narrative style and looking through the eyes of William O’Neal, but it gives us a fantastic look into the life of Fred Hampton and shows all the work that he did, despite the pushbacks he had. Not only does this film have some of the best performances from Stanfield and Kaluuya, great direction from Shaka King, and editing of the year, it also has one of the most compelling stories and it is something that just cannot be ignored in today's society.
