Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

I’m picturing it now: if we were all watching this movie in a packed theater, the last 20 minutes would be viewed in complete silence. You know what this movie is leading up to, and yet it’s still so shocking to see and hear. Wow is honestly all I can say. 

Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield give such passionate performances. Kaluuya absorbs every role, and this one was among his best. Stanfield and Dominique Fishback too deserve so much praise. It’s so exciting to see a movie filled with so many people who clearly love the project and are so passionate about telling the story right. Standing ovations for everyone!
