This Month’s Highlight

Judas and the Black Messiah

This year’s Oscar season, like everything else this past year, is seemingly never-ending, but on the bright side, the extension of the Oscar nomination timeline is giving certain films a chance to shine in a usually quiet period on the movie calendar. And thanks to the Warner Bros./HBO Max deal
(however controversial that may be), we’re getting Shaka King’s Judas and the Black Messiah next month. Starring Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya, King’s film follows the real life events of the FBI’s infiltration of the Black Panther Party through informant William O’Neal (Stanfield), including the assassination of party chairman Fred Hampton (Kaluuya).
