Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah ★★½

Lakeith is the man who lifts this overlong and unfocused movie up. Besides his acting is the cinematography also quite decent, those rainy shots in the car looked atmospheric. But it’s also a movie that screams at you what it wants to be and demands that you take it seriously while the screenplay’s structure, characterizations and narrative don’t have a drive of their own so it doesn’t feel like a movie which resulted in my interest wavering all throughout the runtime. More focus and considerations in its theme and perspective would’ve helped. That A$AP Rocky song (and some other soundtrack songs) felt also quite ironic considering its subject matter.
