Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

Fred Hampton’s execution by the FBI is a cruel thing in and of itself but layer on the coercion of car thief Bill O’Neal to inform, well it is one of the most sinister and depraved of operations.  One of the many brutal events in US History.  Glad these stories are being told.  

Performances are great.  It’s a long film.  Could have been a 4 part mini series really.  Might have helped with the story telling and to develop the characters a bit more.
