Thank you HBO for putting all Warner movies out on HBO Max.

This was a great movie, in a horrible sad way. Every time we watch a movie like this it is shocking to see how little progress the country has made over the decades in terms of race and social injustice. This is one of those movies where the 2 minutes of text on the screen explaining the real world events after the movie was just as interesting/disturbing as the 2 hour movie.

After doing a little research, I wish they would have cast the 2 main leads younger. Billy was 17 when the FBI flipped him, and as the movie said Fred was 21. Kaluuya and Stanfield were amazing though.
