    While I’m not exactly on the “best movie ever on letterboxd” train with this one, man is it just so creative and fun. I do prefer Into the Spider-Verse…but that one doesn’t have Spider-Punk now does it?

    biopics never work for me. they just come off as lazy, half-hearted recreations of the truth, and almost never give you a complete picture anyways. idk man, I’d prefer to just read a book about what actually happened, and what the Panthers/Fred Hampton were really about. this film is just way…
