Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★★

chadwick: *starts dancing and smiling in his brand new shoes*

me: starts tearing up and then eventually breaks down and sobs

this film is great. viola’s performance was outstanding, powerful and so very much oscar worthy. she nailed it and strongly carried every scene she was in. there was so much talent displayed in this film. chadwick blew me away, THEY WILL BOTH WIN THOSE OSCARS! it hurts to know we won’t see another film with chadwick, he would’ve gone soo far with his career. his loss greatly impacted so many of us, he is a legend and his legacy will live on. i’m glad we got to see one final out of this world phenomenal performance from him.
