Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

Sort of went in blind, and I didn't really know what it was about, I just knew Chadwick was in it. But yeah, it's pretty damn good. It drags for me at times, but I can't deny how compelling and well executed all the emotions and thematical material are. Davis and the supporting cast were great, and Chadwick of course was amazing, one of his finest performances.
