    The unbridled life and kaleidoscopic filmography of Piero Vivarelli, who made ltalian B-movies of all genres, wrote hit rock songs and penned the screenplay for Sergio Corbucci's Western 'Django,' adored by Tarantino, are creatively intertwined in a portrait of an unsung postwar provocateur and revolutionary (the only non-Cuban besides Che Guevara to be given a Cuban Communist Party card signed by Fidel Castro) that is also a prism into an unexplored pop culture and its unique vitality.


A Spike Lee drama, but better

I watched this yesterday so many of the things I'm going to say are coming just from the top of my head.Okay, so the top of my head is: WOW. Kudos to Shaka King for this truly great movie.The movie takes us rapidly through the start, development and downfall of Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya) and, by that, the whole Black Panther party, and how the FBI focused on Hampton form the very beginning.I say rapidly because when Spike Lee made one of his masterpieces, Malcolm X (1992), he took 3h and 20 min. to tell us. Now, even considering Hampton's life was way shorter, the astounding runtime of 2h and 5 min to mix FBI chasing Hampton and the Panthers, O'Neal and FBI relations and even Hampton's history itself.The side story is the romance between Hampton and his fiancée Deborah Johnson (Dominique Fishback).The title couldn't have been more accurate, given the movie is about the betrayal of Fred Hampton by Bill O'Neal (Lakeith Stanfield), a man who ended up admiring the activist, who was exactly the opposite of what the US government was in the 60s.Great screenplay from Shaka King and Will Berson, with efficient techniques and interesting themes (I really think this was a topic that should have been made way before).Good cinematography (not the best of all time, it's not a Deakins or a Lubezki, but it's certainly an 8/10), that allows you to get even more in the revolutionary movements, the betrayal of Bill O'Neal and even the importance of Fred Hampton).A 10 in acting: there are very few films with such an incredible acting ('Whatever Happened to Baby Jane', 'The Master' or 'The Godfather' are other examples). I love how Lakeith is glowing, because he's amazing, and he's going to have a great future. Even though, Kaluuya and Fishback take the stand here as the stars.There's a scene between Kaluuya and Lakeith that gave me goosebumps, and Fishback gives a masterclass of acting on the penultimate scene of the movie.I just have to say everyone involved in this movie, and the movie itself, have a great future.You can't talk about this movie without at least mentioning the next two characters in importance in the movie: Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons) and J. Edgar Hoover (Martin Sheen). They both give a good performance in very little time, and show they're really versatile actors (Martin Sheen can be pointed out, given the fact that he has to take the torch from the breathtaking Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar, 2011, and he does it extremely well).Really enjoyable and one of the best movies of the year for me, and I recommend it to everybody.

Well crafted, unique and addictive

When I started watching the movie, I thought it was just a regular movie. As seconds passed by, I felt myself right inside the scenes. Everyone played their roles just so perfectly. Don't think twice. Just watch it.

torn perspective

I'd heard of the Black Panthers but I'd never seen a feature length film about one of them until this one. A clever and devastating approach to the biopic, learning about Hampton through O' Neal who is trying to figure it all out himself, alluding to the tragic perspective of Judas. Although I don't agree with everything Hampton and the Panthers stood for, there is a unique resonance of someone who (even at the age of 21!) was able to build alliances and draw together a coalition of the urban poor across color lines.
