Judas And The Black Messiah Review

Judas And The Black Messiah is a historical drama about a Chicago based revolutionary party named The Black Panther Party against the oppression of the US Government.  Fred Hampton(Daniel Kaluuya ), an activist & Chairman of the revolutionary party was shot dead along few other comrades in the dead of a night. This very incident was alleged to be a conspiracy among the FBI, Chicago Police Department & State’s Attorney’s Office to assassinate Fred Hampton. Therefore, Every year, a negro community based movie is released that sports up to multiple award nominations but they are important as well because of the important incidents & facts they carry.

The Stealing Performances Of The Leads

The main charm of this movie is Daniel Kaluuya who has given his best performance till date. I personally admire him a lot since Get Out & have been watching his films since. Watching his performance as a revolutionary socialist, I couldn’t believe that he’s the same guy from Get Out. He had such a polished appearance that whenever he appeared, he had a profound presence throughout the film.

Daniel Kaluuya as Fred Hampton

After the first one hour, as the story proceeds there is a scene where Daniel enters a room full of crowd cheering where he was to give a speech. That scene itself proved the excellence & depth of his character. His emotions could make the audiences feel what it’s like to be in his shoe. That very scene stole my heart of the entire film. He got his Oscars 2021 nominations in ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE for this act & I don’t see a reason why he won’t win this.

There is LaKeith Stanfield in this movie & the entire story is from his perspective. Stanfield played Bill O’Neal who was the infiltrator of the party, the betrayer who worked for Roy Mitchell(Jesse Plemons) an FBI. And He was throughout the film, and maybe his screentime was more than Daniel & he did a very good job from start to end. He’s nominated for Oscars 2021 in the same said category. And this story is supposed to be more of him than Fred Hampton.

LaKeith Stanfield as Bill O’Neal

The film starts & ends with an interview taken of Bill O’Neal after the incidents occurred. He was so full of himself in the beginning, when offered a plea deal from FBI to get inside news on the party. But as the story progress, different incidents took place & the other characters got more invested to the cause we saw Stanfield’s character getting emotional for the cause too. This sentimental swap that happened within the character spoke a lot about the protagonist that put more soul into the overall story. There are other notable actors like Dominique Fishback, Jesse Plemons, Martin Sheen who had their fair share of screen presence. Of all Dominique had a character worth mentioning.

Verdict

Hence, Directed by the first time director Shaka King, this is a beautifully written, scripted, & directed film. Even Sean Bobbitt’s gorgeous cinematography & the melancholy background music from Craig Harris and Mark Isham made the story more appealing & realistic.  so,This is a very important movie that needs to be witnessed by the world that is both substantial & satisfying. Some might say that the pace of the second half was bit slow (which I didn’t felt) but even if it was, then it was necessary to establish the overall feel & tension of the story. Watch it for Daniel’s mind-boggling performance as Fred Hampton in this film that is one of the best films released this year.
