Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

I know some have said this already but if you plan on watching Judas and the Black Messiah, I would recommend checking out the MLK/FBI doc before. If you don’t know that much about the FBI’s role in combating the Civil Rights movement the doc provides a ton of context. Of course if you’re already familiar with the topic then you’re good to go. I personally wasn’t that familiar with Hoover’s FBI agenda back in the 60s and that plays a huge role in Judas. It’s not required viewing but it did help flesh out my experience watching the film.
