Judas and the Black Messiah ★★★★½

here is the sum total of my negative thoughts about this movie: casting martin sheen as hoover was a mistake, not because of his ability but because his voice is just so damn recognizable (for you it's jed bartlet for me it's the illusive man we are not the same) that it took me out of it. (also his makeup was bad, and unnecessary!)

that's it.

other than that, it's pretty much perfection down the line: impressive direction from shaka king, fabulous writing from king et al, knock-your-socks-off acting from leads lakeith stanfield and daniel kaluuya, along with dominique fishback and everyone else. easily one of the best films of the year
