Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★★

2020 Ranked
Brothers Film Club
I have a sweet spot for theater adaptions with dialoge heavy plots that pack emtional gut punches and riviting performances.
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom has all that and in addtion to that Chadwick Boseman's last (and perhaps best) performance.
He almost outshines Viola Davis as she steals the show away from him.
That's rather fitting as the actual plot of the film is the other way around.
