Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

Devastating, beautiful, infuriating, and possibly one of the most well directed pieces of historical art I have ever seen. Shaka King pulls no punches diving into the world of political activism and the stellar cast (topped off with career-defining work from Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya) breathes life, beauty, and tragedy into this dark stain of our history that has not even come close to being scrubbed away. Undoubtedly a tough watch, but the importance of Judas and the Black Messiah cannot be overstated.
