Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

The last performance of Chadwick Boseman is everything we expected and much more. An outstanding amusing, powerful and deep performance surrounding two remarkable monologues that guaranteed him an Oscar nomination.

It's wonderful to see Chadwick acting in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, giving life to a character full of nuances able to make you laugh, then cry and even get scared of him.

Originally written as a play, the movie is fortunately much more than just a beautiful farewell to Chadwick. Sustained by powerful performances in an engaging screenplay.

Going constantly from comedy to drama, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is funny, beautiful and sometimes thrilling.

Definitely one of the 2020's releases that everyone should watch.
