Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

wish cinemas were open but this was too good, it succeeds as a biopic mainly because it's not trying to be a biopic. it fully inherits being a thriller (it's more "deep cover" than "malcolm x") as well as telling the story at hand accurately and with justice but it's working in genre constricts which give it more heart than just putting a wikipedia page to fbx.
