Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

“we always say at the black panther party, that they can do what they want to, to us, we might not be back. i might be in jail, i might be anywhere. but when i leave, you can remember i said, with the last words out of my lips, that i am a revolutionary. and you’re going to have to keep on saying that. you are going to have to say that i am a proletariat. i am the people.” 

riveting from beginning to end. fantastic cast, fantastic score, and an unfortunately still relevant and devastating story fifty years later.
