Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★

“revolution is the only solution” 

took me a while to get into the flow of the story but i eventually decided that it’s pretty solid and overall very well done. i think what makes it so special for many people is its emphasis on the personal aspects of a true revolutionary who tried to empower others for the greater good while unknowingly facing dishonesty from within. daniel kaluuya’s performance is one to be remembered for a long time.
