Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

the story of this didn’t really work as well as it should’ve for me here, but if anything it’s worth seeing viola and chadwick just hit home runs consistently throughout this film. feels like the screenplay could be tighter in the sense of its themes and where it’s head is that to really get that emotional gratification out of me but still it has some of the best scenes i’ve seen all year and that’s just not down to the actors, they’re given great dialogue to work with. worth a watch and it’s worth any oscars that get thrown at it.
