We Need to Talk About Judas

quote [ The new film, Judas and the Black Messiah, is worth seeing, talking about and analyzing with a variety of historical lenses. The historical lenses include the history of Black Cinema, revolutionary cinema, African American history and the history of political repression in the US in general. ]

I've not seen it yet, but I'm hoping to check it out in the next week or so.

I would definitely recommend another film LaKeith Stanfield is in called Sorry to Bother You. It's quite the watch.

I love him as Darius in Atlanta too

Is that worth a watch? I saw the first couple episodes, but then life happened. I've found Don Glover's politics to be kind of hit or miss, so I never really gave the show high priority in getting back to it.

I recommend watching more of it, especially because season 2 is better than season 1.
There are some highly memorable scenes and episodes, but the cast is what made it for me.
It's barely political as far as I can remember.
It's been one of my favourite series of late, and there's not much of it so it doesn't require a huge commitment.
As for Glover I find his art increasingly interesting, especially as he matures

Word. I'll consider putting into my rotation. Thanks!
