Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★½

One of those films where the more you know about Fred Hampton the more this one might frustrate you. Visually stunning, phenomenally acted, but the writing gets rather exasperating--while the story still works, it often feels like it makes storytelling choices that undercut its own aims. Still, an important, conversation-starting film.
