Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★

As someone who just knew about these people less than a month or so, I expected a character piece about them rather than nothing but a figure (aside from the scenes Kaluuya was talking to female characters, there's a tuck of emotions there). I of course went through reviews about it, black people's reviews, and notice that it's an accurate work with a sensible lacklustering depth towards the people they portrayed. It's settles I guess, to go through these revolutionary groups, their stories and their people is best experienced documentary style. Hollywood today can only do so little in a time where anything to cater to a wide audience feels like a performance. I do seek for a time that if someone was to tell a story about black americans it would star new and upcoming black actors.

More movies starring Plemons as cops or detectives, he plays the shit out of this. And more movies starring Sanders wearing a turtleneck.
