Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★★

In the late 1960s, William O'Neal stole a car while impersonating an FBI agent and was arrested. He faced criminal charges for these crimes. The arresting FBI agent Roy Mitchell offered O'Neal a way out. The offer: a role as an informant for the FBI, inserting himself into the Black Panther Party to keep tabs on Fred Hampton, the party leader.
This film is powerful. It reveals how deeply rooted racism is in society and the justice system.
