It is still just April, but, at the time of writing, it is easily the best film of the year in large part thanks to the memorable performances given by Kaluuya, Fishback, and Stanfield. Read more

Judas and the Black Messiah is excellent and an early favorite here in 2021. Its cultural significance certainly resonates today and the approach taken by Shaka King and his team is much welcome when compared to filmmakers like Spike Lee and Jordan Peele. Read more

With so many issues, most of them oddly self-inflicted, Judas and the Black Messiah works neither as a historical biopic nor a thriller.
