Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

Powerful and extremely well acted, I really hope this film doesn’t miss a slot for Best Picture.

Daniel Kaluuya as Fred Hampton is one of the best performances of the year and definitely should be compensated with several awards. I just the love the brutal honesty of the films story, it presents how dirty the police were. The way they would be doing actual crimes to get what they wanted is absolutely disgusting and it just shows how stuff like this still happens. This is a film that demands your attention through fantastic direction by Shaka King and the electric performances.

I hope this film receives more recognition and I think it will do even better after a 2nd viewing.
