Flick In A Limerick

A black panther chapter on the rise
Is infiltrated by an informant in disguise
With debts to be paid
Alliances are betrayed
Resulting in a young leaders untimely demise

“We don’t think you fight fire with fire best ; we think you fight fire with water best. We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with black capitalism, but we’re going to fight it with socialism.”

The Big Finish

Wow! What a chilling masterpiece. The Black Panther Party will forever be remembered as a revolutionary organization that sparked social change and created opportunities for the under represented. Using the Judas metaphor is so appropriate as the title of this film. What was very amusing was the actual threat the black panther party served for authority. Especially for current president at the time J. Edgar Hoover. Knowledge is power. The good die young as it is very mind-blowing how innovative and how young Fred Hampton was when he died. The only crime is being black with a platform. It is so shocking how the powers that be were afraid of the movement. This film is very well written with expert cinematography. The acting is also incredible It is no wonder why Lakeith Stanfield needed therapy for playing this role as all of the accolades were well deserved. Daniel Kaluuya was great as well in the role of Fred Hampton. The British crossover has already been scary to as I don’t know how he does it. Normally I am not a fan of epilogues but the ending will leave you one awe! A must see picture, Judas and the Black and Messiah demonstrates the power that can be held just for simply doing what is doing what is in your heart for what was right for the greater good.
