Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

“I AM. A REVOLUTIONARY.”

This is one of the most powerful movies I’ve seen in a while. Shaka King had a very clear, concise vision for this film, and I don’t think it could have translated to the screen any better than what he got with Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield’s perfect performances, in addition to Sean Bobbit’s impressive camera work.

An electrifying, smoothly paced, and pretty risky film (narratively speaking) that really paid off.
