This film is inspired by true events. Similarly, to Sam Pollard’s ‘MLK/FBI’ out earlier this year, ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ shows the world how afraid of powerful black men J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI was. Both films come out and say that he feared a Black Messiah and that the number of people Black leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King and the focus of this film, Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, could gather with one assembly alone, terrified him.

“Tesla” is movie about the influential, but much-lesser known, counterpoint to Thomas Edison – Nikola Tesla. The facts surrounding Tesla’s life and his creative spirit should form the basis of a super-charged jolt of a movie. Alas, this effort proves that the juice can run out – even for a bio-pic of a person well ahead of his time.
