IMDbPro teamed up with the Sundance Film Festival to spotlight some of the talented artists at the 2021 festival. Learn more about Judas and the Black Messiah and the artist behind the camera, Shaka King, in our spotlight interview series.
Fred Hampton, a young, charismatic activist, becomes Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party - putting him directly in the crosshairs of the government, the FBI, and the Chicago Police. But to destroy the revolution, the authorities are going to need a man on the inside.
First film with more than two African-American producers to be nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Picture. It is also the first Best Picture nominee to have all black producers, at 3; Shaka King, Charles D. King and Ryan Coogler. See more »
During the police raid on Black Panther headquarters the Chicago P.D. is depicted employing 1966 Ford full-size four-door hardtops. Police units at the time were universally sedans, which when Fords were from the "Custom" line. The Custom line did not include four-door hardtops. See more »

READ THE MOVIE TITLE!!
I haven't written a review in awhile, but felt compelled to do so because numerous reviews complaining about the movie as some sort of failed Fred Hampton biopic...
The movie is titled JUDAS and the Black Messiah, in which we should all be able to discern who's whom, and understand why the movie isn't just about Fred Hampton, so all of you with your fake woke-ness can stop talking about how shallow this movie is or how they didn't do enough, and then counterintuitively discredit this accomplishment of a film about an important part of the U.S. history!
