Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

The first great film of 2021.

While I expected this to focus on Fred Hampton’s tragic story, it more so focuses on Hampton through the eyes of the tragic (but for far different reasons) story of Bill O’Neal. Lakeith Stanfield’s portrayal of desperation and guilt deserves all the praise I hope it gets during award season.
