Judas And The Black Messiah (HBO Max):

Bill O’Neal infiltrates the Black Panther Party per FBI Agent Mitchell and J. Edgar Hoover. As Party Chairman Fred Hampton ascends, falling for a fellow revolutionary en route, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul.

I was really into this for about 15 minutes, then the bluntness of a dull weapon kept hitting me over the head with the message/theme the movie was pushing, for the next 45 minutes. Pro-tip: sometimes, less is more. Just sayin’. Couldn’t finish it. It started to feel like total unabashed propaganda.If one wants to see what I mean, I’d recommend BlacKkKlansman instead, for comparison, which was an excellent movie.
