Another juicy and bittersweet tale of trust and betrayal, ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ takes the grim truth of betrayal to another degree. The movie is a story of two types of people – a revolutionary who cares for his grieving people and a sell-out who only cares for himself. It is a must-watch film because it is about racial discrimination and betraying one’s flesh and blood in exchange for thirty pieces of silver.
Thrilling and insightful! ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ offers a delicate mixture of action, violence and principles. Fred Hampton’s portrayal as a principled revolutionary is truly close to reality. On the other hand, the internal conflict of William O’Neal is beautifully shown both artfully and cinematographically. In the end, William chose the wrong side, and this contributed to his overwhelming guilt and shame. Despite Fred Hampton’s openness, he chose to poison his friend and mentor for no other reason than to save himself. Truly, the movie showed that there is no glory to being a traitor.
Eye-opening! Judas and the Black Messiah’ open the people’s eyes to a history not told in history books. You have heard of the civil rights movement and the Black Panther Party, but the nuances are rarely discussed. Perhaps, with this movie, you will learn more about the struggle against racism in the United States which many textbooks choose to dehumanize conveniently.
Magnificent! ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ offers a grim example of how easy it is to trust a viper. It is a reminder that organizations and leaders must be careful of whom they choose to trust. This movie is a must-watch for those who wanted to change the world for the better.
