Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★

An absolute powerhouse of a film. True stories in film that are filled with both moments of action and smaller scenes of character development/reflection of consequence this balanced is rare but this sticks the landing due to phenomenal direction. Additionally the cinematography was great here too. Long lens shots with foreground visuals obscuring main characters is a great choice to add to the tension and story.

Not to mention both Kaluuya and Stanfield give some of the best performances of their careers.
