JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH by Shaka King. 2021. 126 min.

Nominated for six Academy Awards, Judas and the Black Messiah is a powerful and disturbing recounting of Fred Hampton’s assassination by Chicago police. The anxiety-inducing historical drama is a dual portrait of the charismatic, socialist visionary Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya) and his broken betrayer, Bill O’Neal (Lakeith Stanfield). A suspenseful depiction of two complex figures caught in the politics of revolution, the film is also an ode to the legacy of the Illinois Black Panther party.
